Be More Awards will recognize outstanding volunteers

Bloomington, Ind. - The City of Bloomington Volunteer Network and its partners invite Bloomington and Monroe County residents to the Be More Awards, a community-wide celebration of volunteerism. The ceremony will run from 7 to 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday, April 2 at the Buskirk-Chumley Theater.

More than 87 individuals and volunteer groups have been nominated for awards in 10 categories. Each award will be presented by a different community leader, including Mayor Mark Kruzan and Indiana University-Bloomington Dean of Students Pete Goldsmith.

Awards will be presented in the following categories: Be More Healthy, Be More Phenomenal (board member), Be More Involved (college student), Be More Energized (youth), Be More Sustainable (environmental), Be More Active (recreation/sports), Be More Compassionate (animal welfare), Be More Authentic (judges' choice), Be More Bloomington (overall excellence) and Be More Dedicated (lifetime of service).

The evening will feature the announcement of the award recipients along with great stories and inspirational photos about these incredible people and their extraordinary efforts to make our community the best it can be.

The Be More Awards are produced by the City of Bloomington Volunteer Network and sponsored by the Community Foundation of Bloomington and Monroe County, the IU Credit Union, the United Way of Monroe County, WTIU Public Television and the City of Bloomington Entertainment and Arts District's Buskirk-Chumley Theater grant program.
