Deadline nears for outstanding volunteers nominations

Hundreds of people donate countless hours and weekends for dozens of activities throughout the year in Biloxi, and the city is asking for nominations for outstanding volunteers. The deadline is April 4.

On April 30, Biloxi will recognize individuals, organizations and businesses for contributing time and energy to worthwhile causes in the areas of health, community, arts and history, and sports. A Distinguished Volunteer of the Year also will be recognized, and awards will be presented to individuals, organizations and businesses for their community service.

To obtain a form to nominate an individual, organization or business, contact Events Coordinator Emily Burke at 435-6370.

Supporting materials, including photographs, may be attached to forms. Be sure to write a complete narrative on your nominee. Nominations that are not complete will be returned. Nominees should be limited to one for each category. A committee of Biloxi residents will select honorees; all nominees will be recognized with a Certificate of Achievement.
