The deadline is approaching to nominate individuals for the 2013 Governor’s Service Awards. Nominations most be submitted by July 19 in order to nominate someone for Indiana’s most prestigious awards that celebrate the accomplishments of dedicated volunteers and servant leaders across the state. Nominations are currently being accepted for individuals who display exemplary service through volunteering in the categories of Communities of Service, Corporate Service, Youth Service, National Service, Service-Learning, Faith-Based Service, Volunteerism, and Lifetime Achievement.

The Governor’s Service Awards are presented annually as part of the Governor’s Conference on Service and Nonprofit Capacity Building, and Governor Mike Pence said he encourages Hoosiers to make a nomination and show their gratitude to a service-minded individual, corporate entity, service-learning group or organization.

As in previous years, the goal of the conference will be to provide a forum where Indiana nonprofit leaders, volunteer coordinators, national service members and service-learning participants can engage in meaningful dialogue, exchange best practices, receive valuable training, establish partnerships, and celebrate 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.

For more information regarding the conference or the service awards please contact Conference Coordinator Debbie Pidgeon at dpidgeon@ofbci.in.gov.
