Saanich will reveal the inaugural winners of the Arts, Culture and Heritage Awards on Monday, Dec. 5.

The winners will be introduced to start the night’s council session at 7 p.m.

Chair Vicki Sanders of the Arts, Culture and Heritage committee will introduce the winners for the four new awards.

“We received quite a few nominations, for the first time around we are quite happy with the way it’s going,” Sanders said. “They are very deserving people.”

There will be a Next Gen: Youth Award, that recognizes one or more people under the age of 24 through volunteering, role modelling or some other exceptional demonstration of accomplishment.

The Individual Lifetime Achievement Award speaks for itself, and again can be interpreted on many levels within the confines of arts, culture and heritage.

The Art of Business: Supporter Award, is a unique recognition for a business or group of individuals who demonstrate excellence in raising awareness and support for arts, culture and heritage.

And lastly, the Unsung Hero: Individual Award, is for someone who made a significant contribution to the arts, culture and heritage, by impacting the cultural fabric of Saanich.
