You can choose a Trailblazer or someone from your own community, such as the first African Canadian teacher, police officer, municipal councilor, etc.

Your nomination should be in the format of a letter explaining why your candidate should be on the trailblazer honor roll, remember to support your ideas, why you think that individual should be nominated.

Trailblazer Honor Roll.
