Our communities are made stronger, more welcoming places to live, work and raise a family thanks to selfless contributions of Alberta's volunteers. Each day, these remarkable Albertans give freely of their time and talents to make a difference in the lives of neighbours, friends and people they may never meet. They are the driving force that builds a vibrant civil society in our province.
The Government of Alberta is proud to honour the contributions of Alberta's amazing volunteers and celebrate their achievements through the presentation of the Stars of Alberta Volunteer Awards. The 2019 awards nominations are now open and you can help recognize the remarkable volunteers in your community by submitting a nomination and by encouraging local organizations and individuals to do the same. Share the stories of how volunteers are making your community a better place, one good deed at a time.
Six awards, two in each category of youth, adult, and senior, are presented annually on International Volunteer Day, December 5, at Government House in Edmonton. Albertans whose volunteer efforts have contributed to the well-being of their communities are eligible to be nominated.
Full information, including a nomination form and a downloadable promotional poster suitable for printing or placement on your community website, can be found on the Stars of Alberta website at www.alberta.ca/stars-awards. The deadline for nominations is September 20, 2019.
