Beginning Jan. 8, Virginia residents will have a chance to recognize an unsung hero by nominating him or her for the 2014 Governor’s Volunteerism and Community Service Awards.

The Governor’s Advisory Board on Service and Volunteerism and the Office on Volunteerism and Community Service will be accepting nominations for the 2014 awards until Feb. 19. Awards are presented to groups, individuals and families who “exemplify extraordinary volunteer service.”

For more information or to submit a nominee, visit www.vaservice.org/go/volunteer/award.

Winners will be announced during a Volunteer Week ceremony held in April.
