Volunteer West Virginia announced today that nominations are now being accepted for the 2020 Governor’s Service Awards. The Governor's Service Awards, the state's most prestigious volunteer award, honors individuals and groups who roll up their sleeves to solve community problems in an innovative way.
"This is a wonderful opportunity to share the stories of everyday heroes in the Mountain State," said Governor Jim Justice.
"If you know an outstanding individual, family, group, or business who shines as a volunteer superstar, I encourage you to nominate them for these awards!"
In recent years, recipients of the award improved their communities in many creative ways. Some examples include: mentoring and empowering youth; initiating neighborhood activities for older citizens; and initiating 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 August 27th. The event is coordinated by Volunteer West Virginia, the State’s Commission for National and Community Service.
Nomination forms are available here or by calling 304-558-0111
