In 1991, the Hall of Honor was created to recognize those citizens of Bowie who have made “major and lasting contributions” to the City. The first inductees were honored in 1994.
A nominee to the Hall of Honor must:
Be deceased for at least one year as of the nomination deadline
Have made both a major and lasting contribution to the City of Bowie
Have been a resident of the City of Bowie either during the time of his/her contribution or at the time of death.
Once a nomination for the Hall of Honor is received, the forms and information are passed on to the City’s Community Outreach Committee for review. The Committee then sends its recommendations on to City Council for final approval. If any of the nominees are approved, a reception is held in the inductee’s memory and a plaque is hung in the front lobby of City Hall.
