volunteer service awards

Hundreds of Mt. Lebanon residents volunteer their time each year, giving back to the community in ways that make a real difference in the quality of life here and throughout our region. Last year volunteer firefighter Bob Fischer was the first recipient of the Mt. Lebanon Community Service Award. This year, the Mt. Lebanon Community Relations Board and the Mt. Lebanon Magazine will spotlight another resident who represents the community’s strong volunteer spirit by presenting him or her with the award.

Residents are invited to submit nominations for the award, which will honor a resident “whose volunteer efforts demonstrate creativity, vision, leadership and citizenship by providing service to programs and activities that positively impact the welfare of the Mt. Lebanon community.”

A Community Relations Board committee will select the winner, who will be featured in Mt. Lebanon Magazine and honored at a 2017 commission meeting and at the Volunteer Appreciation Dinner in April 2018.

The selection criteria for Mt. Lebanon Community Service Award are:

• Candidate makes a significant contribution to the community in a volunteer service capacity

• Candidate participates in humanitarian activities that make a difference in the well-being of others

• Candidate has exceptional ethical qualities and strives to improve and preserve the community

• Candidate is an inspirational role model for the Mt. Lebanon community.

One nomination is enough for a volunteer to be considered. Multiple applications will not be weighted more heavily.  Municipal elected officials and staff members are not eligible to participate. Deadline for nominations is Monday, February 20. Download a copy of the nomination form here.
