We seek to build and cultivate capacity in the volunteer and service community by recognizing volunteer leaders and inspiring statewide volunteerism through collaboration.

Power of Service Award

Nominees for the Lt. Governor's Volunteer Recognition Certificate will automatically be considered for the Power of Service Award. This award is presented three times per year and is given to a volunteer who shows significant commitment to the overall well-being of the populations they serve. The recipient of the award will be honored by UServeUtah Commissioners at a commission board meeting with a framed certificate, a letter signed by the Lt. Governor, and the Lt. Governor's coin. Recipients of this high honor will be chosen based on the length of their service, dedication to the common good, and the quality of the nomination for the Lt. Governor's Volunteer Recognition Certificate. As such, when completing the Recognition Certificate nomination, please provide detailed and thorough information about the volunteer's service.

When local government officials start to look at their residents as assets in creating solutions instead of just as recipients of service, a great deal of potential can be unlocked. The Community of Engagement award will encourage cities to engage citizens in volunteerism, especially skills-based programs, to solve issues in their respective communities. It will recognize and celebrate cities that are engaging their citizens in effective and innovative ways.
