Nominations are currently being accepted for the Governor’s Service Awards – Indiana’s most prestigious awards that seek to celebrate the accomplishments of servant leaders and dedicated volunteers across the Hoosier state. Nominations for individuals who display exemplary service through volunteering in the categories of corporate service, youth service, national service, service-learning, faith-based service, volunteerism, lifetime achievement, and communities of service are currently being accepted, and the awards are presented each year as part of the Governor’s Conference on Service and Nonprofit Capacity Building.
Governor Mike Pence said that Indiana is graced with a large number of spectacular people who light the way for their neighbors and communities, and he encourages all Hoosiers to make a nomination and show their thanks to a service-minded individual, corporate entity, service-learning group, or organization.
The goal of the conference, in keeping with previous years, will be to provide a forum wherein Indiana nonprofit leaders, national service members, volunteer coordinators, and service-learning participants can participate in meaningful dialog, trade ideas and best practices, establish partnerships, and receive valuable training on top of celebrating accomplishments.
To nominate an individual or yourself, download the nomination form from the website at www.in.gov/ofbci/awards.htm. Once the form is completed, it can be submitted electronically or by mail. The OFBCI requests that all nominations be submitted by July 19, 2013.
