BURGAW – 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, recognized 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 10 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,” said Tammy Proctor, coordinator for Pender County. “We have nomination forms available in the Hampstead Annex, Pender County Tourism office, or via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.”
Return the completed forms to Governor’s Volunteer Service Award, PO Box 177, Burgaw, NC 28425 no later than Feb. 12.
