The Governor's Volunteer Stars Awards (GVSA) is an initiative from Volunteer Tennessee that seeks to recognize outstanding volunteers from each of Tennessee's 95 counties.  With the program now in its twelfth year, participating counties conduct a call for nominations and recognize one outstanding youth and one outstanding adult volunteer.   The Governor’s Volunteer Stars Awards also recognizes one business and one non-profit from each of Tennessee’s three Grand Regions for their outstanding community involvement and service. 

The  2019 Governor's Volunteer Stars Awards took place in  Franklin, TN on February 9, 2020 to honor and celebrate volunteerism in Tennessee.  Photos of the event and honorees can be found below.
