Presented annually since 1990, the Citizen of the Year Award honors a resident citizen who has made major contributions to the betterment of Poultney, has distinguished himself or herself through outstanding service to the community, and who typifies the true spirit of service and self-sacrifice in representing the finest ideals of Poultney citizenship.
