2020 has been a challenging year for so many Virginians. Do you know someone who has gone above and beyond despite COVID restrictions? How about a local congregation that jumped into action to provide support to a community in pain?
The Governor's Volunteerism and Community Service Awards annually recognize the significant contributions of Virginia citizens to the life and welfare of the Commonwealth and its people. One award is presented in each of 10 categories. These outstanding award winners represent the millions of generous Virginians who offer their time and talents to others each year. Nominate someone today!
January 18, 2021 (MLK Day) until 5pm, April 23, 2021 (Volunteer Week)
Winners will be honored in September.
