Nominations are now being accepted for the 2022 Governor's Volunteer Service Award. 

The awards program, created by the Office of the Governor in 1979, recognizes North Carolina's most dedicated volunteers. 

Through the years, the award has been bestowed on thousands of North Carolinians who have shown concern and compassion for their neighbors by volunteering in their local community. 

(A nomination form is available for download at this link)

Each county selects up to ten individuals, businesses, groups/teams and one paid director of volunteers to be recognized for their outstanding contributions to their communities. 

One of the nominees will be nominated for the Governor's Medallion Award for Volunteer Service, which is awarded to the top 20 volunteers in the state. A local committee evaluates the nominations. 

Nomination forms will be available for download on the Halifax County website, for pick-up from the Halifax County administrative offices in the historic courthouse, for pick-up at all library branches, and upon request via email, mail, or fax from the Halifax County award coordinator.
