*The winner will be chosen by a vote of the Board of Commissioners.
*The town will submit a picture and brief bio to local newspaper on the recipient's perspective regarding the improvement of community relations.
*Honoree’s name and deed will be mentioned in the town's monthly newsletter and their picture will be included on our website for one month.
*This will qualify them as a contestant to receive the annual "Random Act of Kindness Award" which will be chosen through Ayden's Board of Commissioners and Chamber of Commerce.
*Ask Ayden-Grifton High School to announce the person's name and deed at our high school ball games.
