Nominations are now being accepted for the 2020 Governor’s Volunteer Service Award.
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 the top 20 volunteers in the state. A local committee evaluates the nominations.
Nomination forms are available in Wilkes County at the following location(s): Communities In Schools of Northwest North Carolina located at 613 Cherry Street in North Wilkesboro, United Way of Wilkes County located at 910 C Street in North Wilkesboro, and the Wilkes County Public Library located at 215 10th Street in North Wilkesboro. This year, the nomination form will also be available at www.volunteernc.org as an online form which also can be submitted online.
