The Governor's Volunteer Service Award

The Governor's Volunteer Service Award honors the true spirit of volunteerism by recognizing individuals, groups and businesses that make a significant contribution to their community through volunteer service. Any person, group, or entity from the public, non-profit and private sector may be nominated for an award to their county award coordinator. County award coordinators submit their top 10 volunteer nominations per county. There are categories for the type of nominee (senior, youth, faith-based, family, group, business, etc.). Additional categories are based upon the area of service (animal, environmental, disaster, youth, preservation, etc.). County recommendations are reviewed by the Commission and awards are given out in the counties.

The Governor's Volunteer Service Award is an opportunity for Organizations to recognize their Volunteers for exceptional work and dedication throughout the year.

The Award is given out once a year to nominees by the Governor of North Carolina.

Organizations may apply during the fall to The Volunteer Center of Randolph county. Nominators need to fill out an application and provide reference supporting their nominee.

For more information, contact The Volunteer Center or visit the Governor's Volunteer Award Page.
