2020 Awards and Recognition Call for Nominations
Do you know Operation BBQ Relief volunteers who went way above and beyond the call of duty in 2020? Now is your chance to recognize them with nominations for their outstanding efforts!
Volunteers are a cornerstone of Operation BBQ Relief. 2020 was a challenging year in many ways, and our volunteers worked hard to make our deployments and events successful. We need your help identifying individuals for our nine award categories. It could have been motivational or innovative. It could have been leadership or a grassroots effort. Maybe it was behind the scenes or a brand new volunteer who caught everyone’s attention. Or, maybe it was such a stellar contribution that an individual could be our 2020 Rod Cramer Volunteer of the Year! Make your voice heard by telling us who you feel is most deserving and why. A full description of each award is in the nomination survey.
Don’t delay, the nomination window ends at 11:59 PM Central on Sunday, January 31, 2021. Award recipients will be announced in late February.
