Do you know a citizen that goes above and beyond for their community? Nominate them for a 2020 Saskatchewan Volunteer Medal.
“We absolutely rely on volunteers, who make important contributions in our communities,” Lieutenant Governor Russ Mirasty said. “Please help us to recognize these generous and capable people by nominating a deserving individual for the Saskatchewan Volunteer Medal.”
Saskatchewan has the highest rate of volunteerism in the country. The Saskatchewan Volunteer Medal was established in 1995 as a means to formally recognize the selfless devotion of the province’s volunteers, and as a way to present role models to Saskatchewan citizens.
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.
New this year, nominations can be submitted completely online through the Government of Saskatchewan’s Volunteer Medal page at www.saskatchewan.ca/government/heritage-honours-and-awards/saskatchewan-volunteer-medal.
The deadline to receive nominations is October 18, 2020.
