It's the time of year where nominations are officially open for the 2023 Saskatchewan Volunteer Medal. 

The late Bob White of Rosetown was a recipient in 2021 for his tremendous work with youth in the community.

"Saskatchewan people are known for our volunteerism and our community-minded approach," Lieutenant Governor Russ Mirasty said. "Thousands of our citizens go out of their way to help others every year. It is important that we recognize the dedication and selfless acts of our province's volunteers. We can make that happen by nominating outstanding individuals in our communities." 

Created in 1995 to formally recognize the selfless devotion of the province's volunteers, the Saskatchewan Volunteer Medal was established to present role models to Saskatchewan citizens. 

"Individuals or groups are encouraged to nominate current or former long-term residents of Saskatchewan who go above and beyond for their community through acts of volunteerism." shared the release.
