Nominees are individuals, both past and present, who have made significant contributions to Austin via growth, economic impact, health, education, culture, recreation, communications, business or scientific innovation. The committee unveils the inductees each year in Bandshell Park during Freedom Fest on the 4th of July.

They can be sent via email to [email protected], mailed to 500 Fourth Ave. NE, Austin, MN 55912, or dropped off at Austin City Hall.
