Volunteer Recognition Awards

New Mexico Trails’ formal adult awards are intended to recognize exemplary service that is above and beyond what is expected for the individual’s volunteer role. Formal awards should be used to honor specific service rather than longevity. Formal awards are intended to be only one part of a comprehensive recognition plan which should also include informal recognition of volunteers. 

Read through the 2017-2018 Recognitions Guide to see how to best recognize volunters and community partners.

Nominate volunteers online: 

Following are the Volunteer Recognitions:

  • Appreciation Pin for outstanding service to at least one community.
  • Honor Pin for outstanding service to two or more communities.
