Volunteer Iowa Accepting Nominations for the 2022 Governor’s Volunteer Awards

Volunteer Iowa Accepting Nominations for the 2022 Governor’s Volunteer Awards Entry deadline is April 15, 6:00 p.m.

The Governor’s Volunteer Awards program, established in 1982, provides an easy way for organizations to honor their volunteers with a prestigious, state-level recognition award. Recipients are honored at regional ceremonies held in the summer. Three award categories are available: Individual, Group and Length of Service.

Nominations are accepted from: city governments, community colleges, county governments, federal government units operating in Iowa, Iowa MENTOR certified programs, K-12 schools (public and parochial), national service programs operating in Iowa (AmeriCorps, AmeriCorps Seniors), nonprofit and charitable organizations, private colleges and universities, non-state government organizations. There is a handling fee of $15 per nomination.

All information must be submitted online and approved by an official Governor’s Volunteer Awards coordinator. Award recipient information can be submitted using one of the following methods:

  • All organizations (including state government agencies) submit information, and the handling fee, directly through Volunteer Iowa. Organizations will be able to submit the handling fee online.
  • State agencies will submit nominations through the same online form. Invoicing will be handled separately.
  • Staff of state government agencies must submit nominations through their agency's coordinator. A contact list is available on our website.
