Beginning 2015, the Manchester Elks Lodge #1893 began presenting "Citizen of the Year" awards.

Per Elks guidelines, each Lodge is "encouraged to select a citizen, not necessarily an Elk, who has contributed to improving the community. This individual should have shown leadership, volunteered in the community, and been recognized as an all-around good citizen."
