The City of Carrollton is excited to continue its volunteer recognition program! Carrollton is grateful for the quality and quantity of volunteers we have, and we know that many of our important programs and services would not be possible without them.

This year we will be accepting nominations for two awards, the Neighborhood Leadership Award and the Carrollton Volunteer of the Year. Anyone can nominate a special volunteer in the community, and if you know more than one special volunteer, we invite you to submit multiple nominations.

We will begin accepting the nomination applications Monday, May 8 and they are due Friday, August 4 by 11:30 AM.
