The City of Fishers will celebrate the dedicated volunteers and individuals who donated their time and talent to our community last year with a virtual City of Service Awards celebration in April. The City’s annual award program will be expanded in 2021, with new award categories and a month-long celebration during National Volunteer Month to replace the one-night event. This year, the City of Service Awards will feature three community-nominated awards:
Community Servant of the Year: The purpose of this award is to honor a Fishers resident who may not be affiliated with a group or organizations, but regularly conducted acts of kindness to serve their community and neighbors during the year of 2020.
Non-Profit Staffer of the Year: The purpose of this award is to honor a local non-profit staff member who went above and beyond his/her non-profit staff duties and has had a significant impact on community at large in the year 2020.
Essential Worker of the Year: Awarded to individuals, deemed as Essential Workers, that have performed exceptional service to the Fishers community during the COVID-19 crisis in the year 2020.
Nominations are now open through March 8 at www.ThisIsFishers.com/CityofService. Winners will be selected by the Fishers City Council through a blind process and will be recognized during the April celebration.
