The Champion of Service award is presented by the Maine Commission for Community Service each October at the Blaine House Conference on Service and Volunteerism.

  • It recognizes an individual who has served in the public sector (local, county, regional, or state).
  • The recipient is someone who consistently advocates for citizen involvement in addressing community issues and shows an understanding of what supports citizen volunteers need to be effective.
  • The person has demonstrated an understanding (intuitively or explicitly) that towns and cities that thrive are places where residents actively serve to make a difference in civic life and foster the local quality of life.
