Celebrating People in Action
Annually we thank our awesome volunteers with a volunteer recognition event! The Celebrating People in Action volunteer recognition takes place during National Volunteer Week, an event centered around inspiring, recognizing, and encouraging people to seek out ways to engage in their communities. National Volunteer Week is a nation-wide initiative, sponsored by the HandsOn Network and supported by the President and government.
Community Service Awards
During our volunteer recognition, we also highlight the Community Service Award winners as part of Celebrating People in Action. Every spring HandsOn Kansas State partners with Community First National Bank to take nominations and select four oustanding individuals and groups in the Manhattan community who are devoted to service. Outstanding Student Volunteer, Outstanding Student Organization, Outstanding Youth Volunteer and Outstanding Community Group are selected. These winners give of their time and talents to address critical needs in Manhattan, and we believe they deserve recognition for their inspirational leadership. Community Service Awards are recognized at Celebrating Service and Leadership, hosted by the School of Leadership Studies at HandsOn Kansas State. As part of their recognition, each winner recieves a $250 check to donate to the Manhattan community nonprofit organization of their choice.
