The University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown Advisory Board is accepting nominations for its annual Service to Community Award. Established by the Advisory Board in 1995, the award showcases volunteer service by Pitt-Johnstown students, faculty, staff, and officially recognized student organizations.

The criteria for the award include significant service that is performed on a voluntary basis, in any area of assistance to the neighborhood, community, or region. The service performed should either have a significant impact on a population group (such as the elderly, the disadvantaged, the homeless, the unemployed, etc.) or it should have long-lasting or deep-abiding influence or effect on the people of the area served. The service also should have been performed over the last year.

The award will be presented at the spring meeting of the Advisory Board. Through the years, members of the Pitt-Johnstown community have participated on a voluntary basis in local improvement projects, social service programs, and religious, governmental, fraternal, and educational activities in the communities in which they live.

A chairman’s prize of $250 is awarded to the recipient of the Service to Community Award.
