Nominations are now being accepted for this year’s awards.

Nominations are needed in three 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.

VIA will also present the BB&T Spirit of Community Award, which recognizes an organization or business that merits special recognition for volunteer service in the community.

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 applications must be postmarked or hand-delivered on or before 4 p.m. on FRIDAY, March 29 (extended deadline) to:
