Since its inception in 1986, Volunteer Kalamazoo has brought the annual STAR (Sharing Time and Resources) Awards program to recognize the contributions of the outstanding volunteers who exemplify the spirit of volunteerism. Nominations are open annually during the month of January.
We encourage you to take advantage of this unique opportunity to nominate an outstanding volunteer, group or volunteer manager for community wide recognition at the annual STAR Awards program. Winners receive special recognition through feature stories published by MLive Media Group/Kalamazoo Gazette, plus awards that are presented during the official program, scheduled during in April of each year at Chenery Auditorium.
Nominations are open to the public from Jan 1 to Jan 31 each year and anyone may submit a nomination. A panel of independent judges appointed by Volunteer Kalamazoo will select winners. If you know someone, perhaps a neighbor, family member, co-worker, volunteer manager or volunteer at your organization who exemplifies the spirit of volunteerism, this is your opportunity to give them public recognition for the wonderful work that they are doing.
Please help us recognize the unsung heroes in our community by making a nomination.
