United Way Accepting Nominations For Governor’s Service Award

United Way Accepting Nominations For Governor’s Service Award

Nominations are now being accepted for the 2021 Governor’s Volunteer Service Award.

The awards program, created by the Office of the Governor in 1979 honors the true spirit of volunteerism by recognizing individuals, groups and businesses that make a significant contribution to their community through volunteer service. Through the years, the award has been bestowed on thousands of North Carolinians who have shown concern and compassion for their neighbors by volunteering in their local community. Any person, group or entity from the public, non-profit and private sector may be nominated for an award.

Each county selects up to ten individuals, businesses, groups/teams and one paid Director of Volunteers to be recognized for their outstanding contributions to their communities. One of the nominees will be nominated for the Governor’s Medallion Award for Volunteer Service, which is awarded to the top 20 volunteers in the state.  A local committee evaluates the nominations.
