Lieutenant Governor Vaughn Solomon Schofield is encouraging residents to nominate outstanding volunteers for the Saskatchewan Volunteer Medal.
The 2016 nomination period will be open until October 18.
Solomon Schofield says the province created the Saskatchewan Volunteer Medal to pay tribute to those individuals who merit public recognition for their remarkable generosity.
The Saskatchewan Volunteer Medal was established in 1995 to recognize volunteers and those who demonstrate exceptional community involvement.
Selected recipients will receive the Volunteer Medal from the Lieutenant Governor at a ceremony at Government House in Regina in the late spring of 2017, during the 150th anniversary of the confederation of Canada.
Nominees must be current or former long-term residents of the province and Canadian citizens.
Groups and organizations are ineligible to be nominated, along with sitting members of Parliament, the Legislature or the judiciary.
To date, 184 people have received the award for their contributions to their communities.
