Nominations are open for the 2021 Hubbard County Outstanding Senior Citizen Award.

This award recognizes senior citizens who have contributed their time and talent to benefit their community after reaching the age of 65. Nominees must be 70 by June 1.

Judges will look for diversity in accomplishments; how this person’s volunteerism has positively impacted the people in the county and the number of volunteered hours.

One male and one female winner will be chosen.

Official nomination forms are available at the MAHUBE-OTWA office at 120 Central Ave. N., Park Rapids between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. or by calling MAHUBE-OTWA at 218-732-7204. Nominations are due by Thursday, June 23. Mail or email the completed form to Deann Hemenway at

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
