Les Tupper Award Presentation
Each year since 1969 the La Caņada Flintridge Coordination Council has presented the Les Tupper Community Service Award to individuals, organizations, and businesses which have given outstanding service to the community. A Student Service Award was later added. These awards are named in honor of Les Tupper, a civic leader who cared deeply about education, youth and enhancing the quality of life in the La Caņada Flintridge community.
This year's award recipients will be recognized at a public ceremony at the Von Karman Auditorium at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory , our hosts. Names of the recipients are published and the community will be invited to attend.
Les Tupper Service Award is awarded to an individual with long-term and broad-based volunteer service to La Caņada Flintridge. Volunteerism, beyond job related duties, may be in areas of education, youth activities, cultural pursuits, religious, business, civic or social service. This person brings a positive recognition to themselves and to the community of La Caņada Flintridge.
Les Tupper Student Service Award is given to a student in grade 11 or 12 with outstanding personal attributes and has actively participating in service-related activities that benefit both the school and the community of La Caņada Flintridge.
Les Tupper Special Service Award: On occasion, the Coordinating Council Board of Directors may choose to honor individuals, organizations, or businesses who are found to be worthy of recognition for their contributions to La Caņada Flintridge, but who do not meet the broad based volunteer requirements set forth in the Les Tupper Service Award Criteria, but rather have shown service in one special area of interest.
