Volunteer of the Year


Pictou Volunteer of the Year  

 


Each year, communities all across Canada celebrate National Volunteer Week, which normally takes place the third week of April. The primary purpose of this specially designated week is to thank and honour people who donate their time to help others by supporting the causes in which they believe. Volunteer Week also serves to reinforce the human values that volunteering represents and increases awareness of the vital importance of volunteerism to our communities.

Provincial Volunteer Week 
April 18 to April 24, 2021

Annually the Province of Nova Scotia recognizes one outstanding volunteer from every Nova Scotia municipality to receive the “Provincial Volunteer Award”. Each year the Town of Pictou calls for nominations from the community for a Volunteer of the Year. This award is given to a volunteer who has made an outstanding contribution in the Town of Pictou.  We are requesting your assistance in helping select the name of a person to receive this award for the Town of Pictou.  If you are aware of an outstanding volunteer who is a resident of the Town of Pictou, please submit their name to Pictou Recreation and Parks by Wednesday, February 24th, 2021. There will be a Virtual Awards Ceremony organized by the Province of Nova Scotia on Monday, April 26th where recipients are recognized for their valuable contributions to their communities. As well, the Town of Pictou will host a local reception recognizing volunteers, details will be finalized near April as this depends upon Provincial directives around social gathering limits at that time. 

The Province of Nova Scotia has several other categories for awards which are presented as well on Monday, April 26th at the Virtual Provincial Awards Ceremony, they are: 

a)    Volunteer Youth Award (Nomination deadline: March 1, 2021)

b)    Family Volunteer Award (Nomination deadline: March 1, 2021)

c)    Nova Scotia Strong Award (Nomination deadline: March 1, 2021)

 If you know of anyone who is deserving of the above three awards, forms are available at the Pictou Recreation and Parks Office or online at  https://novascotia.ca/NonProfitSector/ProvincialVolunteerAwards/.  You may complete and mail the nomination form for the above special awards to: Provincial Volunteer Awards, PO Box 456, Halifax NS B3J 2R5  OR   Email: volunteerawards@novascotia.ca  OR  Fax to: 902-424-0710.
