2020 Volunteer Group of the Year Nomination Form
NOMINATION DEADLINE: FRIDAY, FEB. 28, AT 5 PM

The Montgomery Serves Awards, our county’s highest honor for volunteerism, annually recognize individuals, businesses, and groups that have demonstrated remarkable commitment to direct volunteer service in our community.

Use this form to nominate a group or team of two or more people who volunteered together on the same project(s) for the 2020 Volunteer Group of the Year Award. Visit www.montgomerycountymd.gov/volunteercenter/awards/ for links to nomination forms for all other categories.

Before completing this nomination form, please review the following guidelines:

• A Montgomery Serves Awards selection panel will review and select winners that have demonstrated commitment and dedication to direct volunteer service in each award category.

• Nominees must either live, work, or serve in Montgomery County.
• Nominees’ volunteer service must have been performed outside the context of their paid employment (i.e., it cannot be part of their job).
• Nominees should not be nominated for their financial contributions.
• Past winners are ineligible to win in the same category.
• Nominators will be notified of their nominees’ status once all honorees have been selected.
