STAR Awards (Sharing Time And Resources) celebrate the spirit of volunteerism throughout our community by paying tribute to individuals and groups who actively donate their time and talents in service to others.
Each year, community members nominate individuals or groups of people to be considered for selection as STAR Award recipients. Nominations are accepted in 14 different categories and awards will be presented at a breakfast program on Wednesday, April 20, 2016, at Chenery Auditorium. This program is attended by more than 300 community members who support volunteerism throughout the area. Additionally, stories about the volunteer service of the winners will be featured on Volunteer Kalamazoo’s website.
Nominations are open to the public 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.
