The Missouri Community Service Commission is collecting nominations to recognize those who answer the call to serve others.

"We want to recognize the work of outstanding individuals who are driving positive change in their communities," MCSC Executive Director Brittany Crabtree said in a news release.

"The Show Me Service Awards are a unique way to honor those who selflessly give their time and energy to improve Missouri communities. We encourage Missourians to nominate citizens who have answered the call to make a difference through service."

The Show Me Service Awards celebrate volunteers in seven categories, including youth, adult, senior, AmeriCorps, AmeriCorps Seniors, Business Excellence and Community Excellence. The deadline for online nominations is April 24.

More information about the awards and nomination forms are found online at

MCSC will recognize award winners at its 21st annual Show Me Service Volunteer Awards ceremony, the details of which are to be determined.
