Due to the ever-increasing risks associated with the Coronavirus COVID-19, the East Tennessee Volunteer Recognition Awards (Saturday, April 4) is being postponed.  While unfortunate, Volunteer East Tennessee is confident that this is an appropriate and prudent course of action under these unique circumstances.  The health and well-being of the honorees, guests, our staff and the staff of the Knoxville Convention Center is of the utmost importance. 
We hope by postponing the event, it will allow us more time to safely host and honor volunteers for their acts of service at a later date.

Congratulations to this year's nominees! 

The East Tennessee Volunteer Recognition Awards (ETVRA) is a regional event honoring volunteers and their contributions to our communities. 





Volunteer East Tennessee is a coordinating agency for the statewide initiative, Governor's Volunteer Stars Awards, which recognizes outstanding volunteers from each of Tennessee's 95 counties, at the state level.  Awards are given to one outstanding youth and one outstanding adult volunteer in each county at a reception in Nashville.
