The proper recognition of volunteers is an important component in any volunteer program, large or small. With ongoing issues relating to volunteer retention nationwide and in all types of organizations, UServeUtah encourages some form of appropriate volunteer recognition. To that end, the Commission is now awarding volunteer recognition certificates to Utahans for outstanding contributions to local communities. The Lt. Governor’s Volunteer Recognition Certificate is aimed at recognizing just a few of the many volunteers helping to make Utah a better state, while promoting and inspiring further ongoing volunteer efforts.
The following criteria must be met for the volunteer to receive a Volunteer Recognition Certificate. All submissions must be accompanied by a narrative statement that describes the nominee’s community service activities and demonstrates how those activities address the community’s serious social problems. Narratives should be no longer than 250 words and should clearly explain the volunteer's volunteer activities and achievements, their commitment to service, and the community need their service meets. Volunteers with identical narratives will not be issued certificates. One time volunteers and National Service members are not eligible.
- Service must have been completed in the state of Utah; no age limit- Must be an unpaid volunteer, not a National Service member (AmeriCorps, Senior Corps, etc.)- Unique narrative (not identical to another nominated volunteer narrative)
* NOMINATIONS CLOSE MARCH 15, 2019. The event is on April 12, 2019 at 3 PM at the Historic Cache County Courthouse.
