Do you know someone who deserves to be recognized as an outstanding volunteer?

The District of Sooke is establishing an ongoing permanent roster of outstanding volunteers in the community. 2001 was the International Year of the Volunteer and the district made the decision to initiate this program on an ongoing basis.

Nominations may be submitted by non-profit organizations, public institutions or groups of not less than three individuals unrelated to the nominees.

The nominations are not competitive and there is no limit to the nominations which may be submitted.

The deadline for applications is October 31, bi-annually.

Those making nominations are requested to describe the impact on the community/region by this individual’s volunteer efforts. Volunteer work must be undertaken for a minimum of 10 years. Nominations can be made for someone who  is deceased.

Nominations are open to individuals in the area from East Sooke, Sooke to Port Renfrew.

Nomination forms can be picked up at the District of Sooke municipal office, or through the district website at www.sooke.ca under Documents & Forms/Applications Forms/ then scroll to Volunteer Recognition Nomination.
