The awards nomination period for 2018 is now open. Join hundreds of people from the community who will gather in downtown Appleton on April 26, 2018, to honor the recipients of eight awards and celebrate the Fox Valley’s spirit of volunteerism during the Celebrating Volunteers dinner and awards event.
- Award recipients will receive $5,000 for their favorite Fox Valley charity or charities.
- The youth scholarship recipient will receive $1,000 for a Fox Valley charity and a $1,500 scholarship.
Consider nominating an outstanding volunteer for 2018 prior to the Feb. 5 deadline! Before starting your nomination, please read these quick tips:
- Nominees must do most of their volunteering in Outagamie, Calumet, Waupaca or northern Winnebago counties, and be able to attend the Celebrating Volunteers event.
- You are strongly encouraged to obtain up to three one-page letters of recommendation from people who can describe why your nominee deserves the award.
- One strong nomination is preferred over multiple nominations for the same person.
- You can start a nomination and click “Save Draft” to return and complete it later.
- People who have been nominated in the past can be nominated again in future years.
