Volunteer West Virginia announced today that nominations are now being accepted for the 2018 Governor’s Service Awards. The Governor’s Service Awards, the state’s most prestigious volunteer award, honors individuals and organizations who roll up their sleeves to solve community problems in an innovative way.
“This is a wonderful opportunity to share the stories of those who have dedicated their time and talents to serve others and build a bright future for West Virginia,” said Governor Jim Justice. “I encourage you to nominate an outstanding individual, organization, family, or business that stands out as a volunteer superstar.”
In recent years, recipients of the award improved their communities in many creative ways. Some examples include: establishing a day center for the homeless; initiating neighborhood activities and support for older citizens; and incubating ideas and enthusiasm for community revitalization projects.
Outstanding West Virginia individuals and organizations that are selected as recipients will be honored at a special banquet at the Culture Center in Charleston on September 6th. Nomination forms are available here
, or by calling 304-558-0111.
The deadline for nominations is June 8th, 2018.
