2016 Volunteer of the Year Nonimation

The Kentucky Standard is seeking nominations for the 2016 Ron Filkins Standard Communications Volunteer of the Year award.

Since 1998, the award has honored Nelson Countians who actively engage and make a difference in the community. The deadline is Jan. 20 at 5 p.m.

“We are honored to be recognizing one of Nelson County’s very own dedicated volunteers for the 16th consecutive year,” Standard Communications Publisher Jamie Sizemore said. “When you look at our past winners, they have been instrumental in taking a grass roots effort and making it flourish.

"We want to encourage our readers and local organizations to take time and tell us your dedicated volunteer’s story so we may honor their commitment and dedication.”

The recipient will be honored Jan. 26 at My Old Kentucky Home State Park’s Great Hall in conjunction with the Bardstown-Nelson County Chamber of Commerce Man and Woman of the Year award.

The nomination form is running in the newspaper, and will continue to do so up to the nomination deadline.
