Volunteer Iowa is Accepting Nominations for Governor's Volunteer Award Nomination!


Volunteer Iowa is now accepting nominations for the 2023 Governor's Volunteer Awards!

Nominations will be accepted through April 17, 2023 at 6PM.  The Governor's Volunteer Awards program provides an easy way to honor the dedicated people who volunteer their time and talent to help an agency or organization deliver on its mission.  There is no review process at the state level to decide who does or does not get an award.  By submitting the information, the person completing the form verifies that the individual or group listed is deserving of the honor.

Nominations may be submitted in the following categories:

  1. Individual Governor’s Volunteer Award: one person providing outstanding volunteer service
  2. Individual Length of Service Award: one person who has served multiple years. Awarded for increments of five years, e.g., 5, 10, 15, etc.
  3. Group Governor’s Volunteer Award: two or more people who volunteer together as a team
  4. Group Length of Service Award (groups who have served multiple years. Awarded for increments of five years, e.g., 5, 10, 15, etc.)

Recipients are not required to live in Iowa, but their service must have benefited an Iowa organization or community. Those previously honored with an Individual Award should not receive another, but may be selected once every five years for a Length of Service Award.
