What's the Good Citizen Award?

The goal of this award is to focus on the really nice folks who populate our wonderful town. Sometimes we spent too much time worrying about those citizens who break the rules, or who don't know about them -- that's what the 911 Report and the Chat License tend to make us think about, don't they?

We at City Hall agree, it's really important to celebrate the citizens who exemplify the Whyville Way!

During Senate Hall discussions, led by former Senator OrEoBaBy and still-current Senator Sonner, many of you said you wanted a way for citizens to file "good citizen reports", which would lead to the awarding of a non-expiring face part medal. Now, we can't allow everyone to report because it would take us a lot of work to investigate each report. We wouldn't be able to tell if you're nominating someone just because they were your best friend, your sister, or your other account.

Instead, City Workers will keep an eye out, and we will take nominations from our senators, since senators are supposed to be our eyes and ears into the community. Y-mail Helpers will also participate in the nominating.

Winners of the award will get a non-expiring face part medal.

What does it take to "exemplify" the Whyville Way? Respecting Whyville's rules; helping others, eagerness to explore, learn, communicate, create; protecting Whyville's safety; all these and more are what the Whyville Way is all about.

Is it what you're about? :-)
