Community Recognition Awards: Submit Your Nominations!
Posted on 04/01/2022

Every day, volunteers make important contributions to our schools. The OCDSB’s Community Recognition Awards are a great opportunity for you to recognize the individuals in your school or community who make a positive difference for staff, students, and families! 

If you know a community member, parent, volunteer, or business partner whose hard work as a volunteer has had a positive impact on their school, please consider nominating them through our formal recognition awards program.

Nominate a volunteer online by 4:00 p.m. on Friday, April 22nd, 2022.

There are six award categories:

  • Community Award
  • Community Partnership Award
  • Distinguished School Council Service Award
  • Excellence in Equity Award
  • Volunteer of the Year Award
  • Chair’s Award

Visit our Community Recognition Awards webpage to learn more about each category. 

We look forward to sharing more about our award recipients and celebrating their accomplishments later this spring.
