All nominees will be recognized at the Volunteer Recognition Event to be held at the Shannon Community Center on Wednesday, February 19, where the winners will be announced. The Organization of the Year will receive a $500 cash prize. Dublin’s Citizen and Young Citizen of the Year will each be granted $300 to donate to their favorite non-profit.
