British Citizen Award

Lonnie Mayne, the founder of Red Shoes Living, has been the keynote speaker at the British Citizen Award for several years, a prestigious program that honors quiet, everyday heroes who work tirelessly to make a positive impact on society. These deserving individuals embody the Red Shoes philosophy and cut through the noise and negativity of the world to give us hope.

When it was suggested that a similar program should begin in the United States, Lonnie knew he and Red Shoes Living would be a part of it. Lonnie is a founding Patron of the American Citizen Award.

It’s Time for the American Citizen Award

In a world increasingly distracted by noise and negativity, it’s the right time for the American Citizen Award. 

The inaugural American Citizen Award will recognize 50 extraordinary individuals for their selfless accomplishments which positively impact their communities at a formal medal presentation ceremony to be held at the Utah State Capitol Building on May 31, 2018.

We encourage all American to nominate individuals who are doing extraordinary things for others in your community. Nominations are accepted until March 23, 2018.

This award is similar to the UK’s Queen’s Honours but is restricted to everyday people whose achievements may otherwise be overlooked. Whether these individuals fundraise for a cause, educate or care for others, excel in their career for the good of other colleagues or perform other acts worthy of recognition, the American Citizen Award platform is a way for America to thank them.
