County opens up “It Takes a Volunteer” Program nominations

Nominations for the County of Grande Prairie’s “It Takes a Volunteer” Program are being accepted until March 3rd.

The county says the program aims to build on the success of the first one in 2023, which highlighted local volunteers during National Volunteer Week.

Officials say successful nominees include “anyone and everyone.” Last year, 10 individuals, six volunteer groups, and three volunteer organizations were recognized for their commitment to volunteerism in their communities and made the inaugural year a success.

Last year’s nominees included the Peace Draft Horse Club, Clairmont Community School Patrollers, and the Bezanson Agricultural Society.

Nominations opened up on February 1st, and three categories are available for nominees- individual volunteers, a group or team of volunteers (three or more), and volunteer organizations.

The county says qualifying nominees will receive an It Takes a Volunteer appreciation package and will be recognized during National Volunteer Week in April.

Interested individuals are encouraged to nominate volunteers online on the county’s website.
