Volunteer Award Nomination Requests- S: 03 December 2021
I’m pleased to request your nominations for an outstanding partner within your area of responsibility for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Excellence in Partnerships Award and outstanding volunteer(s) for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers National Volunteer Award. These awards, which are co-sponsored by the Corps Foundation, will be presented in 2022 at the award recipients’ locations, in ceremonies that recognize their outstanding partnerships and service to the Corps.
The National Volunteer Award began in 2014, and was created to nationally recognize the extraordinary service provided by volunteers, draw attention to their vast skills and contributions, and encourage an attitude of stewardship and responsibility in caring for Corps lands, facilities, and resources. The intent of the award is to distinguish those individuals, couples/family units who give their skills, talents, and time beyond the normal call of duty and whose creditable service to the Corps has resulted in the significant enhancement to one or more of the Corps business lines.
Nominations must be routed through each District to the MSC. Each MSC recreation/stewardship business line manager will electronically forward nomination packages assembled in accordance with the enclosed criteria and instructions to Francis Ferrell, CESAW-OP-LRJ , no later than 03 December 2021. A selection committee will review the nominations and provide me with recommendations for final selection.
Two informational webinars will be provided to explain the application process and answer any questions. Webinar invitations will be sent out one week in advance.
- Sep 8, 2021 from 1:00 – 2:00 Eastern
- Nov 3, 2021 from 11:00 – 12:00 Eastern
