The next nomination deadline is September 15, 2021.
This program is targeted at community volunteers who have volunteered with several initiatives over an extended period of time, and have made a meaningful impact on their community. The purpose of the program is to demonstrate the importance and value that volunteers provide in the areas of sport, culture and recreation through public recognition.
The program will feature two nomination deadline dates per year of April 15th and September 15th. There will be one award recipient for each nomination deadline. The award recipients will receive a grant of $1000, to be utilized in the area of that person’s volunteering efforts (within sport, culture and recreation) while following the guidelines (ex: An individual who has been volunteering on a community Arts Council receives the award and uses the grant funds for an initiative such as art classes for seniors.)
If you are interested in nominating a volunteer in your community, the nomination form and guidelines can be found below. Please read through the guidelines prior to filling out the nomination form.
Let’s celebrate volunteer’s by thanking them for all they do!
April 2021 Winner – Peter Frostad, Strasbourg
Peter Frostad from Strasbourg, Sk. was the recipient of the PCD Volunteer Recognition Award Program in April of 2021.
Vicki Cornwell, nominator from the Strasbourg Recreation Board, noted that Peter has been a volunteer that “… has kept life real for many people during Covid.”
Peter was celebrated for his time and dedication of bringing the community together. His videotaping of events reduced senior isolation while at the same time provided mental wellness for all members of the community.
The $1000 award is going towards a community art project/ mural on main street.
PCD hosted a live virtual concert during National Volunteer Week featuring Lumsden’s Justin Labrash. During the concert we made the VRP announcement to honour Peter and his volunteer achievements.
“Thank you, this is totally unexpected. I really appreciate this award. I don’t think I have ever been awarded anything in my life before.“ — Peter
“It has been a crazy year and being able to try to make it as real as possible for people has been very rewarding, and we have had a tremendous amount of support from the community.” – Peter
Thank you, Peter, for all that you and your team do in the community and surrounding area.
