Okotoks Hall of Fame

In 2013, the Town of Okotoks, in conjunction with the Culture, Parks and Recreation (CPR) Committee, began a new tradition of celebrating outstanding accomplishments of Okotoks athletes, as well as people in the areas of arts, culture and those who have made long-standing and significant contributions to the community. The Town encourages members of the community to submit a nomination for an individual, group, team or organization who has achieved the highest standards of excellence or made extraordinary contributions in one of these categories.
