February 6, 2017 JUNEAU – First Lady Donna Walker announced today that nominations have opened for the First Lady’s Volunteer of the Year Awards. Started by First Lady Bella Hammond in 1975, the Awards recognize Alaskan volunteers who have displayed an extraordinary personal commitment to volunteer service, and have made a major impact on their community or state.

“Over the years, we have recognized many exceptional individuals who have done amazing things for Alaskans,” said First Lady Walker. “I am so pleased to continue this tradition, and encourage Alaskans to nominate those in their communities whose selfless efforts make Alaska an even better place to live.”

Nominations will be accepted beginning February 6 through close of business on March 6, 2017. They may be submitted online at, or hard copies are available for pick up at the Governor’s Offices in Anchorage, Juneau, Fairbanks, and Palmer.

The First Lady’s Volunteer of the Year Executive Committee will review the nominations, and recipients will be announced in late May. For more information, visit the FLVA Website.

[Ed: The nomination process is really easy to make and they request a 300-500 word nomination statement to go with it.]
