Do you know a dedicated individual or group deserving of recognition for their extraordinary volunteer contributions in our community? The Halifax Regional Municipality is currently seeking nominations for its 2019 Volunteer Awards program, an annual program that puts a spotlight on residents that have made a difference in our communities by donating their time and skills to deliver various programs and services.
The nomination deadline has been extended to Sunday, Dec. 23. Nominations must be submitted in one of three award categories: adult, youth (ages 13-19) and community group. Detailed nomination criteria and applications can be accessed online at https://www.halifax.ca/about-halifax/volunteering/volunteer-awards-halifax.
Successful nominees will be notified in March and will be invited to attend an awards ceremony with the Mayor and members of Regional Council in April, to coincide with National Volunteer Week, April 7-13, 2019. From those selected to receive a Volunteer Award, ten representatives will be sent on to the Provincial Volunteer Awards.
