Help Honor Hanover’s Outstanding Volunteers!

Tell us your stories of inspiring members of our community who are making a difference through their spirit of volunteerism.

Nominations are now open for Hanover’s 2020 Spirit of Volunteerism Awards.  Nomination Deadline is March 16th.

Through these awards Hanover recognizes the impact of youth, youth groups, adults, families, older adults, adult groups, long-serving volunteers and community minded businesses.

All nominees are publicly recognized by the Hanover County Board of Supervisors at Hanover’s Annual Spirit of Volunteerism Celebration, May 14th, 7pm at Hanover High School

At the Celebration, award recipients will be named in each of 8 categories.  Award honorees will receive a personalized engraved plaque.  Also,  in honor of Hanover’s 300 Birthday,  our award sponsors will be making a financial contribution of up to $300 to the faith-based, nonprofit, or government community service volunteer program for which the volunteer serves.
