Nominations Open Through October 15
The Small Town America Civic Volunteer Award spotlights the growing challenge small cities and other localities face in retaining and recruiting volunteers to fill vital public service/public safety roles. These volunteer roles include elected officials, volunteer firefighters, committee and commission members that support tourism, recreation and other essential local government services.
The Volunteer Award is specifically for leaders from communities up to 25,000 population. The top 100 national honorees will be announced on November 15th and the top three winners will receive cash awards of $20,000, $10,000 and $5,000 respectively.
City of Dry Ridge Mayor Greg Brockman was among the 2020 winners, as well as Beautify Loretto, Inc. in the City of Loretto. The program is sponsored by the Civic Plus, the National Association of Counties, Main Street America, Points of Light, National Volunteer Fire Council and others.
