The deadline to nominate an individual, youth or group for an HRM Volunteer Award is extended to Friday, December 16th. It's a great opportunity to recognize someone who goes above and beyond in volunteering their time and skills to provide services and programs in HRM communities.
We could use your help to spread the word. If possible, perhaps your organization could:
1. Print and Display our Poster:
Print the attached poster and post it prominently where all your volunteers will see it. Or forward it as an email.
2. Include a blurb in an email, your newsletter or blog:
Each year Mayor Peter Kelly and Halifax Regional Council recognize the extraordinary contributions of individuals and groups who volunteer their time and skills to provide services and programs in HRM communities. HRM is now accepting nominations for the 2012 Volunteer Awards.
Nominations are accepted in three categories: adult, youth (ages 13-19) and community group. Nomination criteria and applications can be found online at www.halifax.ca/volunteerservices.
Successful nominees will be notified in March 2012 and will be invited to attend a ceremony and reception taking place on April 18, 2012 when they will be officially presented with their award by Mayor Kelly and the councillor from their district. The award ceremony coincides with and is in celebration of National Volunteer Week, April 15-April 21, 2012.
From those selected to receive an HRM Volunteer Award, ten representatives will be sent on to the Provincial Volunteer Awards.
The deadline for nominations for the 2012 awards is Friday, December 16, 2011.
