Nominate Someone Today for the Saskatchewan Volunteer Medal

Nominations are now open for the 2018 recipients of the Saskatchewan Volunteer Medal.

“The Saskatchewan Volunteer Medal provides an opportunity for us to honour our committed volunteers,” Lieutenant Governor W. Thomas Molloy said.  “Saskatchewan has a proud tradition of volunteerism, and I encourage everyone to nominate an outstanding volunteer for this prestigious honour.”

Saskatchewan has the highest rate of volunteerism in the country.  The Saskatchewan Volunteer Medal was established in 1995 as a means to formally recognize the selfless devotion of the province’s volunteers, and as a way to present role models to Saskatchewan citizens.

Nominees must be a current or former long-term resident of Saskatchewan. Any individual or group can submit a nomination, but nominations are not accepted for organizations.

Recipients of the Saskatchewan Volunteer Medal will be awarded their medals by the Lieutenant Governor at a ceremony in 2019.
