  • The nominee(s) made distinguished contributions to the community and civic-oriented participation.
  • The nominee(s) is deceased.

Nominations will be reviewed by the Memorial Walk of Fame Nominating Committee, a diverse panel of citizens, representing various artistic disciplines and fields within the entertainment industry. Up to five nominees will be recommended to the mayor and City Council.

More information and nomination forms are available at CityofWS.org/WalkofFame. The deadline for nominations for 2020 is Friday, Feb. 28.
