It’s awards season!
From the Golden Globes to the Oscars, outstanding artists are being recognized for their great work. Locally, RSVP-Northern Virginia sponsors’ Volunteer Fairfax, Volunteer Arlington and Volunteer Alexandria recognize those who excel in the art of making a difference: our volunteers.
This week Volunteer Fairfax opened nominations for the 2019 Fairfax County Volunteer Service Awards. Nominations must be submitted by Friday, February 8th. One of the 14 competitive categories is the RSVP-Northern Virginia Volunteer of the Year award.
Last year, the award was won by RSVP Volunteer and Engagement Leader Ken Kozloff, (shown accepting the award from Fairfax County Board of Supervisors Chair Sharon Bulova during annual volunteer service awards breakfast run by Volunteer Fairfax in Springfield).
Over the last 27 years, Volunteer Fairfax has recognized more than 3,000 individuals for their commitment to the community. RSVP-Northern Virginia is a program of Volunteer Fairfax, Volunteer Arlington and Volunteer Arlington.
Individuals and groups can be nominated in one of 14 competitive categories and four non-competitive categories. All nominees receive a complimentary invitation to the event.
“Nominating a worthy candidate is not only a great way to recognize an outstanding volunteer, but it is also a wonderful way to spotlight the work the volunteer’s organization does,” said Carly Hubicki, RSVP Volunteer Specialist.
Earlier this year, Volunteer Arlington and Volunteer Alexandria named their RSVP Volunteers of the Year. Janet Garber who volunteers with several nonprofits including the Northern Virginia Senior Olympics was named Arlington RSVP Volunteer of the Year. Volunteer Alexandria named Celia Boertlein, a volunteer at Huntley Meadows Park in Alexandria, as its RSVP Volunteer of the Year.
