Started in 2017, the Volunteer Awards are a way for the Town of Peace River to recognize the extraordinary contributions volunteers make to our community. Each year we ask for nominations from the community for one of our four awards. Our Community Services Advisory Board then selects the winners.
Winners receive a prize pack and a $500 donation to the community non-profit of their choice.
We are accepting nominations for the following awards:
Life-Long Achievement Award
- A dedicated individual who has volunteered for at least 20 years, has inspired other volunteers and/or led volunteer initiatives.
Volunteer of the Year Award
- A dedicated individual who has gone above and beyond in supporting our community throughout the year and has inspired volunteers, has led volunteer groups or has made other exceptional achievements through volunteering.
Emerging Leader Award
- Recognizes youth volunteers 18 years and younger who have demonstrated leadership and helped build a stronger community throughout the year.
Community Recognition Award
- A dedicated individual who has volunteered in our community.
