Nominations Sought for 2023 Governor’s Volunteer Service Award

Nominations Sought for 2023 Governor’s Volunteer Service Award

Nominations are now being accepted for the 2023 Governor’s Service Award and Medallion Award for Volunteer Service. 

The awards program, created by the Office of the Governor in 1979, recognizes North Carolina’s most dedicated volunteers. 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.

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 approximately the top 20 volunteers in the state. A local committee evaluates the nominations.
