Lieutenant-Governor Requests Nominations for the Lieutenant Governor’s Community Leadership Awards

Nominations are now being accepted for the Lieutenant Governor’s Community Leadership Awards, to be presented to four deserving individuals from across the province as part of the 40th Annual Volunteer Awards hosted by Volunteer Manitoba. The gala will take place on Thursday, April 18, 2024, at the Club Regent Event Centre.

 

“Everywhere I go, I am reminded of the rich spirit of volunteerism that exists in this great province,” said Lt.-Gov. Anita R. Neville. “In communities large and small, Manitobans give so much of their time, talent and creativity to impact and enrich the lives of others and make a difference. I encourage you to recognize a worthy volunteer by nominating them for this award.”

 

The Lieutenant Governor’s Community Leadership Awards will recognize individuals who embody the spirit of volunteerism by identifying a need in the community, initiating creative and meaningful ways to fill that need, and motivating others to join them in service for the greater good. Up to four awards will be presented annually in each of the following categories: rural, northern, urban and youth (under 30).

 

The Lieutenant Governor’s Awards were originally established by former lieutenant-governor Peter M. Liba in 2000 and have been supported by all lieutenant-governors who followed.
