Volunteers play a critical role in the success of Tennessee communities across the state. Through nonprofit organizations, national service programs, faith-based organizations, and neighbor-helping-neighbor, outstanding volunteer service is part of our state heritage. The Governor’s Volunteer Stars Awards (GVSA) is an annual event that honors the efforts of volunteers from across Tennessee. Each year one adult and one youth are selected to receive this prestigious award in recognition of their exemplary volunteer service in Johnson County.
Nominations for both adult and youth (25 and under) volunteers will be accepted until November 18, 2019.
Nominees will be judged based on the community’s need for the volunteer service performed, the initiative taken to perform the service, creativity used to solve a community problem and impact of the volunteer service on the community.
Nomination forms can be picked up at the Johnson County Extension Office. Once completed, please return to [email protected] or drop off at the Johnson County Extension Office.
Additionally, you have the opportunity to nominate a business or non-profit for their outstanding community involvement and service. Businesses and non-profits can self-nominate; applications are due December 10, 2019.
