Star-AwardsThe search is on for Alberta’s outstanding volunteers as nominations open for the 2017 Stars of Alberta Volunteer Awards. Across the province, thousands of volunteers give generously of their time and talents to help make life better for others. We have all in some way benefited from the impact of the work of volunteers in our communities. If you have experienced the fun at a local festival or community event, have taken part in local minor sports, or watched the action at the neighbourhood arena, then your life has been touched by a volunteer. 

Over the years, we have heard thousands of incredible stories of the compassion and dedication of Alberta volunteers. We know there are so many more waiting to be told. Tell us the one about the remarkable volunteer in your community. Share their story and let them inspire others. Nominate them for the 2017 Stars of Alberta Volunteer Award.
