Nova Scotians can recognize outstanding volunteers in their communities by nominating them for a 2017 Provincial Volunteer Award.
Each year the awards honour volunteers from across the province for their selfless contributions. Nova Scotians can nominate volunteers in the categories of volunteer representative award, volunteer youth award and volunteer family award.
The representative volunteer award recipients are selected by their municipalities. The volunteer youth and volunteer family award winners are selected by a review committee.
The premier, lieutenant-governor and minister of the voluntary sector will present the awards at a ceremony in April.
Nomination forms are available at http://novascotia.ca/volunteerawards .
The deadline for nominations is midnight, Feb. 24.
