Nominations for the 2018 Stars of Alberta Volunteer Awards are now open.
The awards recognize extraordinary Albertans whose volunteer efforts have contributed to the well-being of their community and fellow community members. Two awards are given in three categories: youth, adults, and seniors.
Those receiving the award will have exemplified the spirit of community service; demonstrated exemplary initiative, leadership and creativity in their service to others; served as a role model and inspired others to volunteer; and improved the overall quality of life of fellow Albertans and their community as a whole.
Since its inception in 2000, 115 Alberta volunteers have received awards. Nomination forms and award criteria can be found at the Government of Alberta website.
The nomination deadline is Sept. 21.
