The awards program, created by the Office of the Governor in 1979, recognizes North Carolina’s most dedicated volunteers.

One of the nominees will be nominated for the Governor’s Medallion Award for Volunteer Service, which is awarded to approximately the top 20 volunteers in the state. A local committee evaluates the nominations.
