The Governor's Volunteer Service Award honors the true spirit of volunteerism by recognizing individuals, groups and businesses that make a significant contribution to their community through volunteer service. Any person, group, or entity from the public, non-profit and private sector may be nominated for an award to their county award coordinator. County award coordinators submit their top 10 volunteer nominations per county. There are categories for the type of nominee (senior, youth, faith-based, family, group, business, etc.). Additional categories are based upon the area of service (animal, environmental, disaster, youth, preservation, etc.). County recommendations are reviewed by the Commission and awards are given out in the counties.
Starting October 2021, nominations may be made online or by using the downloadable nomination form, form in MS Word, or en español. If using the nomination form, send the form to the county award coordinator by clicking on the appropriate county below. Online nominations will automatically be sent to the county award coordinators. Be aware county coordinators may select an earlier deadline for accepting nominations. Please complete Guilford Nominations by January 15, 2022.
