Merced County is now accepting applications for its 2023 Volunteer Recognition Program.
Established by the Board of Supervisors in 1999, the annual program is a time for the County to say "thank you" to the many volunteers in our community that go above and beyond in their service while enhancing the surrounding community.
Nominations can include either groups or individual volunteers. Applications will be screened by an external advisory committee, and winners (two per supervisorial district) will be recognized during the April 25, 2023 Board of Supervisors meeting at 6 p.m.
Nominations can be made online. A printable nomination form is also available at that webpage. All nomination forms must be received by 5 p.m. Monday, April 3, 2023 to be considered for this year's program. Should you have any questions regarding the nomination process, please contact Merced County Public Information Officer Mike North at (209) 726-2744.
Please note: to qualify for the program, nominees must donate their time/service without pay or other compensation. Volunteers to political efforts, elected/appointed officials, and declared candidates are ineligible.
