Governor's Volunteer Award


Do you have volunteers in your district or school you would like to honor? Sign them up for the annual Governor’s Volunteer Awards.

Volunteers may be selected for an award in one of several categories: individual, group, disaster volunteer, or length of service. Each summer, regional award presentation ceremonies are held across the state to recognize hundreds of volunteers for their commitment, service, and time. There is a small processing fee of $15 per award, payable by the nominating organization.

Award recipient criteria include an individual or group who has:

  • demonstrated exceptional commitment to volunteerism by helping with a special project or ongoing activities;
  • demonstrated exemplary leadership, creativity, cooperation and hard work in their service to others;
  • made an outstanding contribution to state or community through volunteer service.
