Nominations for the Governor's Outstanding Volunteer Service Awards are now being accepted by the State Office of Volunteerism.
These awards recognize the important contributions that Delaware's volunteers, 18 and older, make to their communities through volunteerism. The awards honor individuals, school organizations, corporations and community groups in the areas of arts and culture, education and more. The Paul Wilkinson Lifetime Achievement Award is presented to a person who has had a longtime commitment to volunteerism. Volunteer efforts must have been performed during 2012.
Nominations must be submitted by Aug. 20 to the Office of Volunteerism, Attn: Governor's Volunteer Service Awards, 805 River Road, Dover, 19901 or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Award recipients will be honored at a special ceremony Oct. 22 at Dover Downs Hotel.
