The West Midlands Volunteer Awards: all you need to know
The West Midlands Volunteer Awards show recognition and appreciation of the invaluable work that thousands of volunteers contribute every day. Since 2016 we have welcomed over 400 guests to 3 fun-filled Award evenings with fine food and fantastic entertainment at Birmingham Hippodrome. Collectively we have celebrated over 90 finalists and awarded 28 winners!
Let’s talk entertainment
Each evening we are joined by a variety of talented artists who help make it a night to remember, along with a little bit of help from our audiences too! Improvised Opera’s, time travelling magicians and hip hop crews (to name just a few) have all taken to the stage.
And the winner is
There are four categories you can nominate your volunteers for:
2019 Nominations close on July 22 and a shortlist will be announced on August 1. All shortlisted nominees and their nominators are invited to a ceremony on September 11 at Birmingham Hippodrome.
A winner is awarded in each category. The final award is the Judges’ Award for Excellence selected from the winners of the four category awards. This year the winner of Judges’ Award for Excellence will be awarded £500 to spend on a project of their choice at the museum, art gallery or heritage site.
In 2018 the Judges Award for Excellence was awarded to the Forest School Volunteers at Compton Verney Art Gallery and Park.
We are delighted that the Awards are being held again this year. Keep up to date with the Awards on our Facebook page.
Nominating is easy, simply follow the Guidance to complete the Application Form and send it to us before Monday 22 July!
We want as many people as possible to get involved and nominate their star volunteers so we can make the 2019 Awards bigger and better than ever!
