Middle Smithfield Township Person of the Year Award

Celebrate Unsung Local Heroes

Each year, residents gather to celebrate the unsung heroes in the Middle Smithfield Township community and choose a Person of the Year.

The Person of the Year award recognizes Middle Smithfield residents who have made a positive difference in the world and highlight the importance of altruism, philanthropy and community service. The recipient of the award will receive $1,500 towards their cause, while two finalists will receive $1,000 each toward their cause. The winners will each be decided by an independent panel of judges.
