The application deadline is June 1st.

Since its creation in 1870, Ozark has been a city blessed with many civic giants. These are leaders, both men and women, who have given tirelessly to grow and improve our city, region, state, and nation.

Now it is time for us to memorialize these Civic Giants!

As part of Alabama’s bicentennial, we are selecting the top leaders dating back to the 1820’s that lived in Ozark for at least ten years. These leaders must have achieved great and lasting accomplishments in one of these eight categories: Agriculture, Arts, Business, Education, Government/Public Service, Military, Religion, or Medicine/Health.

We are asking any citizen or group in Ozark to submit a name to be considered for any, or all, of the eight categories that you believe should be recognized for their tireless service. Nominations can be made between April 1, 2019 and June 1, 2019. Once the nomination process is complete, a panel of local citizens will review those nominated and select a winner in each category. The selected honorees in each category will be named “Ozark’s Civic Giants” and will be inducted into the Ozark Civic Hall of Fame and unveiled at our Bicentennial Gala in Ozark on December 14, 2019.
