Nominations for the City of Round Rock’s 2012 Local Legend Awards are being accepted until July 22

Anyone can nominate an individual or group for the award, which honors Round Rock residents who have had a positive and lasting impact on the culture, development, and history of our community.

  • personal achievements that have brought honor and distinction to the nominee and the City of Round Rock.

The Local Legend Award program was established in 1990 to honor individuals and groups who have played an important, if not always prominent, role in the history of Round Rock.
