The Lieutenant Governor's Community Volunteer Award for Students pays tribute to students who not only complete the required number of volunteer hours to graduate, but who go above and beyond.
Each year, an award is given to one graduating student at each of Ontario's secondary schools.
The award is for students who are graduating from an Ontario high school (public, provincial, private and demonstration).
In the spring of each year, call-for-nomination letters are sent to all Ontario high school principals. Principals or a designated student group can nominate students for this award.
There is no deadline; when returning the student recipient information forms, schools should allow a minimum of three to four weeks for delivery of the pin, letter and certificate.
School principals, or their designate, select a student from their school and complete and sign the recipient information form.
A school committee dedicated to student recognition can also name a recipient and complete the recipient information form, which must also be signed by the principal or his or her designate.
The awards are sent to participating high schools for presentation at an assembly or graduation ceremony.
Refer to the nomination form to get more details about program requirements.
