Outstanding Volunteers Sought for Spirit of Service Award

 

(WASHINGTON, D.C.) – The Corporation for National and Community Service today announced a national call for nominations for the 2005 Spirit of Service Awards, which pay tribute to outstanding participants in each of the Corporation’s programs – Senior Corps, AmeriCorps, and Learn and Serve America.

The awards will be presented to the winners during a special ceremony at the National Conference on Volunteering and Service, August 4-6, in Washington D.C.

“National service participants change the communities they serve in and our nation as a whole. We want to hear the most compelling stories our projects can provide about how Senior Corps volunteers, AmeriCorps members, and Learn and Serve America participants raised the bar for what service can accomplish,” said Corporation CEO David Eisner. “We intend to recognize these heroes and shine a national spotlight upon them.”

Nominees must exemplify the spirit of national service, demonstrate exceptional service or leadership, and serve as role models for others in their community. Awards recipients will be selected from the following categories:

  • Senior Corps: RSVP or Special Volunteer Program, Senior Companion, and Foster Grandparent;

  • AmeriCorps: AmeriCorps (State and National, Tribes, Territories, Education Award programs); AmeriCorps*NCCC, AmeriCorps*VISTA, and an AmeriCorps alum; and

  • Learn and Serve America: Student, Educator, and Service-Learning Program.

Nominations are easy to make. Visit www.nationalservice.gov/spiritofservice for nomination guidelines and to apply online.
