Who deserves to be recognized as Berlin Patch's Person of the Year for 2011?
If you know someone who made Berlin a better place in the past year, contributed time and energy to various causes or even made a smaller impact that's still important, nominate him or her.
Enter your nominations by 5 p.m. Friday, Dec. 23. If we get enough we will make a poll and allow Berlin Patch users vote on the nominees.
You can nominate yourself, someone you've worked with or even someone you've just read about that might deserve this recognition. E-mail local editor Bob Mayer at firstname.lastname@example.org with your nominees and a few paragraphs supporting your choice.
You can also post your nominees and supporting data in the comments section.
