VOSCARs (D&G) 2018 Nomination Form

2018 is the Year of Young People and we’re celebrating this by showcasing some of the talent within our region. We’re also changing our format in response to comments we’ve received. This year we’re having a two-tier approach. We’ll be presenting locality awards for each category, the winners of which will be invited to our VOSCARs (D&G) 2018 event where the regional winners will be announced.

The VOSCARs (D&G) 2018 will recognise outstanding volunteers within the Dumfries and Galloway area. Please note individuals, groups or people using the group must be based in the Dumfries and Galloway region.

Your nomination must give a brief outline of the volunteer’s role and what they have achieved through their volunteering. Please highlight what makes them stand out from other volunteers i.e. what makes their contribution, commitment or achievements exceptional? What difference have they have made to your organisation, your service users, the local community? You may include quotes from service users/volunteers/staff.

Young Community Champion (under 25)

This award recognises the unique contribution that young people make by bringing their passion, innovative ideas and vitality to the work of many organisations across Dumfries and Galloway.  We are looking for nominations for a volunteer you feel has gone the extra mile to make a difference within their organisation, an individual who is recognised as an outstanding leader or role model or who has overcome significant barriers or constraints and flourished within their volunteering role.

Although the nominated volunteers could be volunteering in any setting, we’re looking for volunteers who are exceptional in their attitude, commitment or impact.
