The Governor's Volunteer Award program provides an easy, non-competitive way to honor the dedicated people who volunteer their time and talent to help an agency or organization deliver on its mission.  Nominations are accepted in March and April each year.  Awards are presented during regional recognition events held each summer. 

State agencies, nonprofits, charitable organizations, and non-state government entities may recommend an individual volunteer or group of volunteers who directly assisted the organization with a project, event, or activity for a Governor’s Volunteer Award.
