You can celebrate the great work of volunteers in your community with a few clicks of your mouse and keyboard. The United Way of Door County opened the nomination period for its Golden Hearts Awards, which is entering its second year under its guidance. The organization will present awards in seven different categories: adult volunteer of the year, environmental stewardship volunteer of the year, arts volunteer of the year, cultural volunteer of the year, volunteer group of the year, youth volunteer scholarship award, and the Karl May Lifetime of Service Award. After nominations are made, an independent, anonymous panel of community leaders will choose award recipients for each category. United Way of Door County Executive Director Amy Kohnle says the event is a great way to celebrate the “Door County spirit.”
Nominations can be made by clicking this link and submitting them before February 27th. The Door County Golden Heart Awards will take place on April 24th at Stone Harbor Resort in Sturgeon Bay.
