Each year the Mayor and Halifax Regional Council recognize the extraordinary contributions of individuals and groups who volunteer their time and skills to provide services and programs in HRM communities. HRM is now accepting nominations for the 2013 Volunteer Awards.
Nominations are accepted in three categories: adult, youth (ages 13-19) and community group. Nomination criteria and applications can be found online at www.halifax.ca/volunteerservices.
Successful nominees will be notified in March 2013 and will be invited to attend a ceremony and reception taking place on April 24, 2013 when they will be officially presented with their award by the Mayor and the councillor from their district. The award ceremony coincides with and is in celebration of National Volunteer Week, April 21-April 27, 2012.
From those selected to receive an HRM Volunteer Award, ten representatives will be sent on to the Provincial Volunteer Awards.
The deadline for nominations for the 2013 awards is Friday, December 14, 2012.
