The deadline to nominate a Daytonian for the Dayton Region’s Walk of Fame is 5pm on February 5, 2020. The online nomination form and narrative, along with any accompanying materials must be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
NOTE: Nominations will be considered active for three years from the date of submission after which a new form must be submitted, officials from Wright Dunbar, Inc. advised.
The Walk of Fame began in 1996 as part of the Dayton Bicentennial celebration. The Walk honors individuals or groups from the Dayton region who have spent a significant amount of time in the region and have made an enduring impact on the local community, the region, the nation and/or world. Memorial stones for each honoree are placed in the sidewalks of Dayton’s historic Wright-Dunbar District along West Third Street between Shannon and Broadway Streets.
“We look forward to the community nominating those who have done great work in support of the region, the nation, and the world,” said Harry Seifert, Wright Dunbar Inc. president and chair. “We know there are many in business, community service and other actives who deserve to be recognized. The region’s Walk of Fame provides recognition to those who are worthy and helps motivate a new generation to do great things.”
Nominations may be made in the categories of arts and culture, aviation, business and corporate, education, entertainment and media, environment, government and military, invention and innovation, law, medicine, philanthropy, science, significant personal achievement, and sports.

The 2020 inductees will be honored at a luncheon at Sinclair Community College on Thursday, Oct. 29, 2020.
