This year, the awards recognize outstanding volunteers from all reaches of our state who improve their communities in a variety of ways, from helping children find new interactive ways of learning to providing community enrichment through the arts. Our teams of judges awarded eight state-level awards and 22 regional awards this year, for a total of 30 awards. The awards will honor 18 individuals or duos and 10 volunteer programs.
Presenting sponsor Wells Fargo will make a cash grant to a nonprofit organization select by each winner. Grants of $700 will be made on behalf of state-level winners, and grants of $425 will be made on behalf of regional winners.
