Montgomery Serves Awards

The Montgomery Serves Awards are our county's highest honor for volunteerism. These annual awards recognize individuals, businesses, and groups that have demonstrated remarkable commitment to direct volunteer service in our community. 

Nominations for this year have closed. Watch this page for upcoming information on this year's celebration livestreamed event!

Selection Guidelines

  • A Montgomery Serves Awards selection panel will review and select winners that have demonstrated commitment and dedication to direct volunteer service in each award category. 
  • Nominations will be evaluated based on volunteer service performed in 2020 (or throughout the nominee’s lifetime for the Neal Potter Path of Achievement Award) as detailed in the nomination narrative. The narrative is limited to 1,000 words. See the nomination form for narrative guidelines.
  • Nominees must either live, work, or serve in Montgomery County.
  • Nominees’ volunteer service must have been performed outside the context of their paid employment (i.e., it cannot be part of their job).
  • Nominees should not be nominated for their financial contributions.
  • Past winners are ineligible to win in the same category. Current members of the Montgomery County Commission on Aging are ineligible for the Neal Potter Path of Achievement Award.
  • Nominators will be notified of their nominees’ status once all honorees have been selected.
  • Nominations must use the appropriate nomination forms and submitted no later than Friday, March 12, 2021 at 5:00 PM
