2020 Governor’s Points of Light Awards (POSTPONED)
April 9 @ 10:30 am - 1:30 pm
Dear Attendees, Finalists and Sponsors,
In response to the recent concerns about large gatherings and COVID 19, Nevada Volunteers has made the decision to postpone the 2020 Governor’s Points of Light Awards on April 9, 2020 at the JW Marriott Resort in Las Vegas. The event is not cancelled and we hope to have a rescheduled date confirmed shortly and will share that information as soon as it is available.
We look forward to celebrating all this year’s finalists once the health concerns have stabilized and we can all safely come together for this extraordinary event.
Please contact Nevada Volunteers with any questions.
Nevada’s Governor’s Points of Light Awards ceremony was inaugurated in October of 2001. Since that time, these awards have celebrated the extraordinary volunteer efforts of Nevadans across the state, highlighting regional impacts along with the private and public partnership across the nonprofit and corporate sector.
The 2020 Governor’s Points of Light Award categories are:
- Individual Volunteer
- Individual Youth Volunteer
- National Service Member of the Year
- Nonprofit and Community Organization Volunteer Program
- Corporate and Business Volunteer Program
- Community Leadership Award
- Lifetime Achievement Award
Unlike other volunteer recognition programs administered by Nevada Volunteers, the Governor’s Points of Light finalists are selected by a panel of judges. Finalists show achievement through voluntary service in the following areas:
Excellence in Volunteerism: Excellence in volunteerism/service is an individual or group that is passionate about the organization’s mission and consistently strives to improve how they serve.
Commitment: Commitment is dedication to advancing a community or cause.
Impact: Impact is defined as nominees who, through their volunteerism/service, achieve results that are evident and advance a cause or improve a community.
Use of Resources: Maximization of the tools and funds available in order to increase reach and/or impact of service.
Longevity: Longevity is defined as the endurance of a volunteer who has an inherent ethic of service and desire to improve their community through lifelong volunteerism.
