AUGUSTA — Volunteer Maine, the Maine Commission for Community Service, seeks nominations for all categories of the 36th annual Governor’s Awards for Service and Volunteerism.

Nominations are scheduled to close at 5 p.m. Friday, March 18, according to a news release from Volunteer Maine

Since 1987, the awards have celebrated and recognized the role of citizen volunteers in the success and vitality of Maine communities. At the same time, the awards seek to inspire others to be active in civic life and follow in the footsteps of those recognized. The awards program is managed for the Governor’s Office by Volunteer Maine.

Recipients of competitive awards for individuals, teams and organizations — as well as those named to the Maine Volunteer Roll of Honor — will be celebrated during a virtual ceremony at the end of April, the specific date of which is to be announced.

Among other forms of recognition, Roll of Honor recipients will be recognized during the Portland Sea Dog’s annual Volunteer Appreciation Game, scheduled for April 20 at Hadlock Field in Portland.
