First Lady Walker announces opening of nomination period for Volunteer of the Year Awards


February 5, 2018 JUNEAU – First Lady Donna Walker announced today that nominations have opened for the 2018 First Lady’s Volunteer of the Year Awards. First Lady Bella Hammond started the tradition of recognizing Alaska volunteers who have displayed an extraordinary personal commitment to volunteer service, and have made a major impact on their community or state in 1975.

“We have recognized some incredible individuals over the years, and it is my honor to continue this storied tradition,” First Lady Walker said. “Alaskans give so much of themselves for their communities, and they deserve recognition. I look forward to once again hearing about the amazing things happening across our state thanks to the great work of volunteers.”

Nominations will be accepted beginning February 5 through close of business on March 5, 2018. They may be submitted online at volunteerawards.alaska.gov, 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.
