Doyon values publicly recognizing shareholders for their outstanding contributions and service to Native culture and lifestyle. The Doyon board of directors will present the Shareholder of the Year Awards at the 2020 Doyon annual meeting of shareholders on March 15, 2020, in the following categories:
- The Poldine Carlo Citizen of the Year Award, which recognizes a person who has demonstrated leadership, strong commitment, competence and sensitivity in the educational and cultural survival of Alaska Natives. Recipients may be chosen for contributions in the fields of health or education, maintenance of a traditional lifestyle, or for the example they set as parents.
- Hannah Solomon Elder of the Year Award, which recognizes an Elder, age 55 or older, who has devoted his or her life toward the betterment of Alaska Natives. The award is named in honor of the late Hannah Solomon, who dedicated her life to teaching the younger generation traditional ways.
- Daaga’ Community Service Award, which recognizes a community or individual who shows strong commitment, competence and sensitivity in helping others to make their community a healthier and safer place to live, and whose accomplishments have directly affected Alaska Natives.
If you know a shareholder who exemplifies characteristics from these three categories, it is essential that you submit the nominee application to Doyon by the October 25 deadline.
The award recipients are nominated by fellow shareholders, community members and friends. Please note that Doyon discourages nominations received from family members, such as parents, spouses/significant others, children, siblings or grandparents. Tribal councils, village corporations and colleagues are encouraged to nominate outstanding individuals.
