19 in 2019

Dana Point prides itself on our surfing, arts culture, small-town vibe, and the individuals who make our community whole. This year, the City of Dana Point is celebrating 2019 by featuring 19 individuals that live and/or work in Dana Point and have a fascinating story to share. Perhaps they are a pillar in the community or an up-and-coming force in their field or craft. These are the faces that make Dana Point the unique community that it is.

We are looking for Dana Point locals, employees, business owners, volunteers, and even Dana Point students who make an impact on our community. Dana Point is full of colorful people with unique stories to tell, and we want to get the word out.

Do you know someone around Dana Point that has an incredible story? Are they making a difference in the Dana Point community? Submit them using the link below for a chance to be featured during our 19 In 2019 campaign.

All you have to do is fill out a short contact form to nominate somebody.  You just need to enter your name, email address, the person’s name you are nominating, and a brief description of the person and why the person deserves to be featured.

We will be accepting submissions year-round, beginning on 1/15/19. Once chosen, a member of the selection committee will reach out directly to get more information on the citizen we would like to feature.

Each citizen that we feature will be highlighted in the following ways:

  • One post on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter with a picture and story
  • A featured story in the City of Dana Point monthly e-newsletter
  • A mention in the Dana Point Times
  • Their name and picture will be added to www.aboutdanapoint.com, where all 19 winners will be highlighted

To see all of the selected individuals, follow us along on our Facebook, Instagram, Twitter channels as well as our monthly newsletter that you can subscribe to here.

We will be taking submissions all year as we feature 19 stories in 2019!
