The Town of Oro Valley is now accepting nominations for the 2013 Volunteers of the Year. Nominees should embody the spirit of volunteerism by going above and beyond the call of duty in an effort to better our community. One man and one woman will be selected based on the outstanding nature of their volunteer efforts and will be recognized at the annual Volunteer Appreciation Reception on Dec. 12, 6 – 8 p.m. at the Hilton El Conquistador Golf and Tennis Resort.

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

Nominations must be received by Friday, Nov. 1.

To nominate someone, simply submit a nomination letter, as well as a supporting letter from a second individual, to Misti Nowak, Town of Oro Valley communications administrator at

Nominations may be hand-delivered to town hall, or submitted by email or postal mail. Submissions received after Nov. 1 will not be considered. Both letters of support must be submitted together. For postal submissions, send them to Oro Valley Town Hall, 11000 N. La Cañada Dr., Attn. Misti Nowak

All nominees will be notified prior to the Volunteer Appreciation Reception on December 12, and will have their names printed in the program. The town’s volunteer selection committee will judge nominations. All decisions are final.
