VIA SEEKS NOMINATIONS FOR VOLUNTEERS OF THE YEAR AWARDS

Volunteers in Action (VIA), made up of representatives from various agencies and organizations that rely on volunteerism, is seeking nominations for its 31st annual Volunteer of the Year Awards. Sponsored this year by Truist (formerly BB&T), American Legion Post 23, and BGMU.

Nominations are needed in SIX categories: the Anne Grubbs Spirit of Service Award, which honors a person excelling in quality, length, and spirit of service to others; the Team Award, which recognizes a group that has worked together to provide outstanding volunteer service in the community; and the Rookie Award, which recognizes an individual or group that started volunteer service within the past 24 months. This year we have added three new awards in light of our recent history: the Pandemic Response Award, which recognizes an individual or group who has made an impact in our community in response to the pandemic; the Tornado Relief Award, which recognizes an individual who has made an impact in our community in response to the recent tornadoes; and the Tornado Relief- Team Award, which recognizes those groups who have made an impact in our community in response to the recent tornadoes.

Nominees will be judged on:

  • history of community activity
  • demonstration of cooperative attitude
  • the impact that the volunteer’s efforts had on the organization and its clients

All nominees will be recognized as winners from their organizations and will receive a memento and certificate at the Volunteer of the Year Awards ceremony scheduled for Sunday, April 24 at the Bob Kirby Branch of the Warren County Public Library, starting at 2 p.m. The award recipients will receive plaques. 

All nominations must be submitted on or before 4 p.m. on March 25 to:
