Montana Student Volunteer Award

The Montana Student Volunteer Award was created to honor Montana’s civically engaged college students. MTCC affiliate campuses, in partnership with the Governor’s Office of Community Service, give this award to college students across the state who have demonstrated service to their communities while pursuing a college degree or certificate. Campuses organize committees, seek nominations from across campus, and select the student who most meets the award criteria.

Honorees of this annual award are college students from across the state who demonstrate dedication to service in their communities while pursuing a college degree or certificate. “Montana students who serve our communities enrich their education and make meaningful impacts across our great state. It is an honor to recognize these amazing individuals for their service in partnership with Montana Campus Compact” said Governor’s Office of Community Service Director Sarah Sadowski.

This year, 12 student volunteers across Montana were recognized on April 26th and will be celebrated at local events. Each winner will receive a certificate signed by Governor  Gianforte and their campus’s CEO. Read more about these amazing students here:
