Volunteers are a vital component of Saskatchewan communities and now you can recognize their efforts. Nominations are currently being accepted for the 2019 Saskatchewan Volunteer Medal.
The Saskatchewan Volunteer Medal was established in 1995. Nominees must be a current or former long-term resident of Saskatchewan. Any individual or group can submit a nomination, but nominations are not accepted for organizations.
Moose Jaw's Christine Boyczuk received the Volunteer Medal in 2018.
“Our province is well known for our outstanding volunteers,” Lieutenant Governor Russ Mirasty said in a press release. “The Saskatchewan Volunteer Medal allows us to recognize the generosity of those who give their time to improve the lives of others. I encourage everyone to nominate an exceptional volunteer for this provincial honour.”
The nomination deadline is October 18. Recipients will be awarded their medals by the Lieutenant Governor at a ceremony in the spring.
Nominations can be submitted online.
