Volunteers make the hearts of Maine communities beat!
Since 1987, the Governor's Awards for Service and Volunteerism have celebrated and recognized the role of citizen volunteers in the success and vitality of Maine communities. At the same time, the awards seek to inspire others to be active in civic life and follow in the footsteps of those recognized.
Nominations for the 2023 awards are now open. All recognition will be presented during National Volunteer Recognition month (April 2023). The ceremony for competitive awards will return to in-person!
Deadline for all nomination categories is 11:59 pm on February 28, 2023. Don't wait! Time flies by!
