LAFOLLETTE, TN (SPECIAL TO WLAF) – Campbell County is currently seeking adult and youth nominations for the Tennessee Governor’s Volunteer Star Awards.

The program promotes the importance of volunteering by recognizing those who are committed to local community service.  Each year, the Governor’s Volunteer Star Awards showcases Tennessee’s volunteer spirit by promoting state-wide volunteerism and strengthening participation in community service.  One youth (under the age of 25) and one adult will both be recognized.

All nominations will be judged by a local committee, and then sent on to Nashville.  The two selected Campbell County winners will be honored in the spring with their fellow award winners from other counties across the state of Tennessee.

Any adult or youth or adult whose volunteer activities in Campbell County benefit the community in a substantial, important, or unique way will be eligible.  Volunteers may be nominated by anyone or can nominate themselves.

Please email all nominations to Brandon Johnson, Campbell County Chair at with a complete nomination.

Complete nominations should include 300-400 words about the need the nominee has addressed, the action they took, their innovation to address the need, and the positive change that was a result of their service.

“This program is the perfect way to recognize volunteers in our community,” said Brandon Johnson.  “We have countless servant leaders right here at home that deserve appreciation for their hard work.”

Nominations are due by October 1st. (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 08/18/2022-6AM)
