[ARCHIVED] City of Siloam Springs Receives Volunteer Community of the Year Award

2021 Volunteer Community of the Year Award Mayor Nation Acceptance

Congratulations to the City of Siloam Springs, its residents, businesses, organizations, churches, nonprofits, and volunteer groups who worked together to win the 2021 Volunteer Community of the Year award. It was presented at the Arkansas Municipal League winter conference award banquet on March 27. This year's nomination, and in turn award, focused on how the community supported food insecurities in the city, especially during the pandemic. Hundreds of individuals came together to ensure that those needing food were able to access it in a free manner. Thank you to all those who continuously help our friends and neighbors in need in Siloam Springs. 

Other cities honored this year include Fayetteville, Vilonia, North Little rock, West Memphis and Osceola

About the award: 

  • These awards are designed to recognize municipalities (rather than individual volunteers or nonprofits) that seek to address the municipality's greatest needs through the engagement of citizens. They may include Mayor's Youth Councils, citizen committees, utilization of community-wide service initiatives, citizen advisory forums, etc. 
  • The Arkansas Volunteer Community of the Year Awards are co-sponsored by the Governor's Advisory Commission on National Service and Volunteerism (GACNSV), and the Arkansas Municipal League.
  • A panel of judges composed of distinguished citizens from across the state meets to review each nomination and select the award recipients
