These awards are presented by the Governor‘s Advisory Board on Service and Volunteerism and Service at the Virginia Department of Social Services, on behalf of the Office of the Governor. There is a special category for Educational Institutions.
From Governor McAuliffe:
“The Commonwealth of Virginia is strengthened by organizations and individuals dedicated to addressing community needs. As we kick off the nomination period for the 2016 Governor’s Volunteerism and Community Service Awards, I strongly encourage you to help identify individuals and organizations who have served their fellow Virginians in an exceptional manner during the past year and take the time to nominate them for one of these awards.
For more than 20 years, the Governor’s Volunteerism Awards have honored individual seniors, adults, and youth, as well as community and faith-based groups who serve their fellow Virginians in extraordinary ways without expectation of reward, recognition, or compensation. This spring, the Governor’s Awards will be presented to another group of outstanding Virginians who exemplify that spirit of service. Recipients of the awards develop and foster the virtues and skills of civic engagement and social responsibility, demonstrate sustained commitment to meeting community needs, and utilize unique and creative approaches to meeting those needs.”
