The Town of Oro Valley is accepting nominations for its 2011 Volunteers of the Year.

The town is looking for two individuals who embody the spirit of volunteerism by going above and beyond the call of duty in an effort to better the Oro Valley community.

One man and one woman will be selected based on the outstanding nature of their volunteer efforts. They will be recognized at the annual volunteer appreciation reception on Dec. 8, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Hilton El Conquistador.

Nominations are open to anyone who has volunteered for a town-sponsored project, program, department, committee, etc. Serving on a town board or commission meets that criterion, but is not a requirement for nomination.

The deadline to submit a nomination has been extended to 10 a.m. on Friday, Nov. 4.

To nominate an individual, submit a nomination letter as well as a supporting letter from a second individual to Pat Klein, Oro Valley constituent services coordinator. Both letters of support must be submitted together.

Nominations may be hand-delivered to Town Hall, 11000 N. La Cañada Drive, Oro Valley 85737, or submitted by email at, or postal mail to Pat Klein.

Submissions received after 10 a.m. on Friday, Nov. 4 will not be considered.

All nominees will be notified prior to the volunteer appreciation reception, and will have their names printed in the program.

Nominations will be judged by the town's volunteer selection committee. All decisions are final.
