Nominations Sought for the Spirit of Santa Maria Award


The All-America City Committee is now taking nominations for the inaugural Spirit of Santa Maria Award. The Spirit of Santa Maria Award is a civic recognition program aimed at those individuals, organizations and/or businesses that contribute a significant amount of time, effort, resources, or funding towards addressing community concerns, thus improving the quality of life in Santa Maria.


The goal of the program is to not only provide an opportunity to highlight and explain a wonderful program or community issue that has been improved through the efforts of Santa Maria residents, but also to emphasize that community service is important to the overall well-being and betterment of our community.


The nomination period will take place during the month of April. The deadline to submit a nomination is 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, April 30th. The selection of the award will be made by the All-America City Committee with advice from the City Council and the City Manager’s Office. Nominations may be made by any member of the community. Recipients of the Spirit of Santa Maria Award will be recognized at a City Council meeting in July 2015.


Please visit for instruction on completing and submitting the nomination form. Should you have any inquiries regarding this civic recognition program, please contact David Rodriguez, Community Outreach Coordinator, at (805) 925-0951 ext. 414.
