“Whether it’s through a faith-based organization, a community group or an independent service initiative, I’m confident there are many worthy volunteers and service providers who represent every corner of the state,” OFBCI Executive Director Jeff Cardwell says. “I encourage people to submit the names of these deserving Hoosiers so we can honor their work.”
Governor’s Service Award winners will be recognized in October as a part of the Governor’s Conference on Service and Nonprofit Capacity Building, a two-day event hosted by the Indiana Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives (OFBCI) and SAVI Community Information System.
The Indiana Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives is accepting nominations for the 2013 Governor’s Service Awards honorees now until July 19, 2013.

This year’s Governor’s Service Awards will be presented in eight categories:
- Communities of Service
- Corporate Service
- Faith-Based Volunteer
