Nomination statements should describe community-wide volunteer initiatives within a 12-month period.

Nomination deadline has been extended to October 18, 2019!
Two ways to boost a COY Nomination:
Special consideration will be given to communities that mobilize citizens to complete an annual community-wide service initiative. Ideally, service initiatives target legacy projects, which are designed to provide long-term support for the community’s infrastructure, operations, and/or quality of life. These community volunteer initiatives should seek to impact the areas of greatest need.
Special consideration will be given to cities who join the Cities of Service coalition and, under Cities of Service guidelines, create a citywide service plan. For more information on the Cities of Service coalition, visit https://citiesofservice.org/.
Note: Participation in a citywide service initiative and or/ partnership with Cities of Service will be criteria used in selecting Arkansas Volunteer Communities of the Year from this point on.
