The next nomination deadline is April 15th.
In 2015 the Prairie Central District launched the re-vamped Volunteer Recognition Program. 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. For more information contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Let’s celebrate volunteer’s by thanking them for all they do!
