Worcester County Seeking Nominations for Volunteer Spirit Awards

To honor volunteers whose contributions help improve the quality of life locally, Worcester County residents are invited to nominate individuals, organizations, and businesses for the Volunteer Spirit of Worcester County awards. The nomination period is open Friday, July 1, 2022 through Friday, September 2, 2022, at 11:59 p.m.

“As we continue to serve our community during this pandemic, there are many outstanding residents, groups, faith-based, businesses, and nonprofits who are still working tireless to support the many needs in Worcester County,” Human Resources Specialist Kelly Brinkley said. “We have grown stronger and more resilient over the past years through the continued efforts of many coming together by rolling up their sleeves and pitching in, we want to honor this exceptional display of selfness over the past year.” Volunteer Spirit nominations will be accepted for each of the following eight categories: individual, group/team, emerging leader, faith-based, nonprofit volunteer program, local business, veteran, and lifetime achievement.

Nominees should reside in and represent the volunteer spirit of Worcester County. Nomination forms are found online at www.worcestervolunteer.org. Once there, click on “News.” The nomination form will be available at the Human Resources Office, Room 1301 in the Worcester County Government Center in Snow Hill, or by contacting Brinkley at 410-632-0090 or kbrinkley@co.worcester.md.us.

To highlight the outstanding services of the volunteers, the Worcester County commissioners will be presenting award winners at the October 18, 2022 Commissioner’s meeting.
