The winners were chosen by a panel of three local judges following a review of all applicants. Three finalists were chosen for each category, with one overall winner. The finalists in every category were invited to attend the award luncheon at the Wellings of Picton, held on April 26.

The finalists and winners of each award were chosen at the judge’s discretion based on a number of factors such as time commitment, impact, challenges overcome, engagement within the community, and inspiration to others.
