Outstanding Townshippers are nominated by the public. Candidates are those who have made considerable contributions to the life of the Eastern Townships English-speaking community, either within their local community or the Townships community as a whole. They are people who have given of themselves, beyond the usual expectations of their job or profession, through volunteerism, social activism, mentoring, or philanthropy.

Candidates can come from all walks of life (advocacy, art, business, education, community organizations, health and social services, etc.) Candidates may be an individual, a couple or a group, of any ages, as long as they have lived in the historical Eastern Townships. Nominations may also be made posthumously.
