It's time for Inquirer readers to tell us who should receive the Editorial Board's 10th annual Citizen of the Year award.
This award honors actions exemplifying citizenship in its broadest sense by people who have helped their neighborhood, city, region, or nation in effective, creative ways while demonstrating integrity and perseverance.
Our first award was presented in 2004 to former New Jersey Gov. Tom Kean Sr. for his leadership of the 9/11 Commission, which produced a thorough, candid report on one of America's worst days.
Grassroots activists Timothy Potts, Eugene Stilp, and Russell Diamond won the award in 2005 for leading the successful public revolt against Pennsylvania legislators' sneaky pay raise.
The 2006 winner, former Mayor W. Wilson Goode Sr., was cited for his Amachi program, which mentors children whose parents are incarcerated.
Community leader Helen Gym, a persistent voice in support of improving Philadelphia's schools, was the 2007 winner.
Former Common Cause director Harry S. Pozycki was cited in 2008 for his work to get more New Jersey citizens involved in local and state government.
The 2009 winners, Marsha Levick and Lourdes Rosado of the Juvenile Law Center in Philadelphia, uncovered the unjust detention of juveniles accused of crimes in Luzerne County.
Helene Pierson, executive director of the Heart of Camden community improvement organization, was the 2010 recipient.
Honored for her work in 2011 was Sister Mary Scullion, who for more than two decades has been in the forefront of an uphill battle to improve the lot of the city's homeless.
Steveanna Wynn, the 2012 recipient, runs the SHARE program, which supplies food for 500 neighborhood pantries serving low-income Philadelphians.
So who should be the 2013 Citizen of the Year?
