2018 Governor’s Volunteer Service Awards

2018 Governor’s Volunteer Service Awards

Friends of Service and Volunteerism — Do you know an outstanding volunteer – someone who devotes incredible energy to making your community and our state a better place to live? How about a national service member whose volunteer service goes above and beyond the requirements of the designated program? What about a well-run program at an organization, business or corporation that supports vol¬unteerism? If so, you can help them get the recognition they deserve.

We are pleased to announce that the nomination guidelines and online form for the 2018 Governor’s Volunteer Service Awards are now available on our website:


The awards will honor some of Washington’s most dedicated individuals and groups for their commitment to volunteerism as the foundation for caring communities and a thriving Washington.

Please read the nomination guidelines before completing the online nomination form. Nominations are to be submitted online only unless alternate format accommo¬dations are requested.

The deadline to submit is 5 p.m., Feb. 8, 2018.

Selected recipients will be invited to attend an award ceremony at the Executive Man¬sion on April 9, 2018. We also invite all to join us and the Seattle Mariners on Monday evening, April 16, 2018, for Salute to Volunteers Night – a special night to recognize all volunteers. There will be an on-field pre-game ceremony honoring the recipients of the 2018 Governor’s Volunteer Service Awards.
