Gov. Perdue encourages North Carolinians to nominate volunteers for Governor’s Service Awards


RALEIGH – Governor Bev Perdue today encouraged North Carolinians to nominate volunteers to receive the Governor’s Volunteer Service Award by August 28. “Countless North Carolinians dedicate their time to serving their communities, and too often their contributions go unrecognized,” Perdue said. “If you know someone who has made a difference in the lives of others, I encourage you to nominate them for the Governor’s Volunteer Service Award. Let them know how much you value their dedication to service.” Since 1979, the Governor’s Volunteer Service Award program has honored individuals, groups, teams and businesses that make significant contributions to their communities through volunteer service. The awards program is administered by the North Carolina Commission on Volunteerism and Community Service, which is housed in the Governor’s Office. Volunteer awards nomination forms are due to the Commission by August 28. Please contact your county coordinator for local deadlines. A list of county coordinators can be found here: If you cannot find your local county coordinator, or are interested in becoming an awards coordinator in your county, please contact Tim Kelly at (919) 715-2279 or
