Gov. Doug Ducey’s office wants to honor the state’s top youth for the 16th year.

The deadline is August 31 for the Governor’s Volunteer Service Awards prizes. To nominate an outstanding youth through the Governor’s Commission on Service and Volunteerism, visit getinvolved.az.gov.

There are five categories, including Lifetime Community Service, Service to Others, Inspired Youth Leadership, Service to Community and Service Enterprise Champion.

“Volunteers contribute much to the fabric of community in Arizona,” said Samuel Burba, interim director of the Governor’s Office of Youth, Faith and Family.

“Recognizing Arizona’s outstanding volunteers is a great way to acknowledge their contributions as well as promote future volunteerism across Arizona.”

The winners will be announced in October, with a ceremony to follow in November.

The commission was created under executive order to provide oversight for AmeriCorps, which is funded by Congress. The mission of the Governor’s Volunteer Service Awards is to promote an ethic of service and volunteerism and to recognize volunteer efforts that strengthen communities and improve quality of life for Arizonans.

“The commission recognized a great opportunity to recognize individuals performing significant service for people and communities across the state,” Burba said.

“The commission and the Governor’s Office of Youth, Faith and Family looks forward to recognizing and honoring the hard work, commitment and impact these individuals have had in our many diverse communities.”
