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 thirteenth 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 2020 Governor's Volunteer Stars Awards virtual ceremonies premiered on February 7, 2021 to honor and celebrate volunteerism in Tennessee.  

The  virtual awards ceremonies are available for viewing here:
