The City of Weyburn Walk of Fame Award is a committee that consists of a member of City Council as well as local volunteers, approved by City Council, who adjudicate the submissions received by the public. This committee was established to identify and honour the outstanding achievements of our community’s citizens.
The Walk of Fame plaque is awarded to an individual for outstanding athletic, cultural, academic or humanitarian achievement with the following criteria:
• Individually achieved national or international fame or accolades in their field of endeavor.
• The individual has lived in the City of Weyburn or surrounding area for a minimum of 5 years at any point during the individual’s lifetime (City of Weyburn street address or Weyburn post office box number), and consider the City an important part of their life experience.
Inductees are recognized with the installation of a permanent plaque (with his/her name and a small inscription) at a public ceremony.
