The Municipality of The Hague will award the Hague Volunteer Awards 2022 on Saturday 19 November. Everyone can register their favorite volunteer, volunteer organization and/or volunteer team from today.
You can register up to and including Sunday 25 September at Haagsevoluntarysprizes.nl. The jury consists of last year’s winners. They make a selection from all applications and choose this year’s seven winners.
“Volunteering is versatile and very important in our city,” says Alderman Kavita Parbhudayal of Care, Youth and Public Health and responsible for volunteer policy. “The beach, preparing packages at the food banks or as a board member for a foundation. With the Hague Volunteer Awards we put the volunteers of our city in the spotlight every year. Active residents are indispensable for a vital city. Volunteers are crucial in this.”
The Hague Volunteer Awards are awarded in seven different categories: Sport, Care & Welfare, Neighborhood & Environment, Culture, Development & Youth, Volunteer Teams and Volunteer Organisations. The jury will announce the nominations in October. Three contenders will be selected for each category. The award ceremony is on Saturday 19 November 2022 in Amare.
