Nominate Round Rock’s 2021 Local Legends
The Local Legend Award program was established in 1990 to recognize individuals, families, businesses, groups, publications, and organizations that have had a positive and lasting impact on the culture, development, and history of Round Rock. Local Legends are selected by the Historic Preservation Commission, assisted by a citizen volunteer committee, which will review and recommend nominations. The Legends receive a certificate and are honored by the City Council.
The Local Legend Award is a Round Rock historic preservation program recognizing contributions to Round Rock’s history in the areas of historic preservation, history, culture, diversity, and/or heritage. Local Legend nominations must have a direct connection to the founding of the City of Round Rock or help tell the complete story of the City of Round Rock after its founding through city development, preservation issues, achievements and efforts. A nominee may be a person, place, object or site that reflects contributions to Round Rock’s history at least 40 years ago.
Please note that the nomination instructions have changed slightly. In order to emphasize the historic aspect of the awards, nominations must reflect contributions made to Round Rock’s history at least 40 years ago.
Nominations for the Local Legend Award are accepted year-round but must be received by May 31 to be considered for the 2021 awards. If you would like to nominate someone to be honored as a Local Legend, please complete a nomination form (Wordfill or pdf) and email to [email protected], or print and mail to:
