Governor's Volunteer Stars Awards
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 eleventh 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 2018 Governor's Volunteer Stars Awards took place in Franklin, TN on February 10, 2019 to honor and celebrate volunteerism in Tennessee. Photos from this year's event can be found below.
