Richmond Hill seeks nominations for its yearly awards

December 28, 2016 by  

Volunteers perform a huge number of important roles in the Richmond Hill community, and the town has put out a call for nominations to win its one of its 2017 Volunteer Achievement Awards.

The public is being asked to submit the names of anyone they feel has made a difference through volunteering. Seven different categories have been created that cover a variety of people and roles. To qualify for an award, the recipient must live in Richmond Hill, must not be paid for their efforts, and be actively engaged in helping others. Additionally, volunteers are not permitted to nominate themselves.

The review committee will go through the submissions to ensure all of the information is accurate, and those who have had their names suggested will then be contacted by mail. The Council makes the final decision about who will win.

The awards will be presented during a National Volunteer Week event in April. A company that produces personalized corporate gifts will be able to craft ones that are unique and have been specially designed for a volunteer recognition event like this.

An opportunity to submit a nomination can be found on the Town of Richmond Hill website. They must be received by February 6 at the latest if they are to qualify for this year’s award.
