First Lady to Honor Outstanding Volunteers in Alaska
January 19, 2011, Juneau, Alaska - First Lady Sandy Parnell invites Alaskans to recognize their fellow citizens who have performed extraordinary volunteer service by nominating them for the First Lady’s Volunteer of the Year Awards.
The awards recognize volunteers who engage in unpaid charitable activities, demonstrate personal commitment to long-term volunteer services, and make a significant impact for Alaskans.
An executive committee, comprised of Alaskan community members, will select award recipients to be recognized in April, during National Volunteer Appreciation Month, for their outstanding volunteer contributions.
Nominations are due by February 21. For more information, log on to the governor’s website: http://gov.alaska.gov/parnell/governors-office/volunteer-awards.html. Forms are also available at the Capitol in Juneau or at the governor’s regional offices in Anchorage and Fairbanks.
