Deadline for 2013 Andrus Award nominations is June 1.
June 1 is the deadline to nominate someone for the 2013 Andrus Award for Community Service, our most prestigious honor for a volunteer.
Last year, Ervin Rees won the award for his impressive work in his home community of Alief, but it was a tough decision. We received many nominations, and got to hear about some fantastic volunteer projects going on all over Texas.
Running up the deadline we’ll be introducing some of the people behind those projects - our 2012 nominees! Every single person nominated deserves recognition for the incredible work they’re doing in their local communities. But in the nature of service, the true winners are the communities they all serve so faithfully.
Help us take the opportunity to celebrate champion volunteers by nominating someone you know for the 2013 award.
To nominate someone, check out the eligibility guidelines then fill out this questionnaire.
