If you rock at volunteering then the provincial government has the right award for you.

Newfoundland and Labrador

Nominations are now open for the 2014 URock Volunteer Awards. These awards aim to recognize the contributions of young volunteers in Newfoundland and Labrador.

"Whether it's volunteering at a senior's home, fundraising or helping out at a community centre, young people are working enthusiastically all year round and their contributions are generating lasting benefits for the people of the province," said Steve Kent, minister responsible for the office of public engagement.

The nominations can be made in two categories — individuals or youth-led non-profit organizations.

Individual nominees must have made outstanding voluntary contributions without reward or gain, be 30 years of age or under, and be a current or past resident of Newfoundland and Labrador.

If you want to nominate an organization, it must be youth-led groups which have made contributions without reward or gain and for the betterment of others.

All nominees, recipients and their families will receive an invite to attend the 2014 URock Volunteer Awards show at the Glacier in Mount Pearl on May 15.

The eight award recipients will each receive a customized electric guitar.

The deadline for nominations is March 31. For more information, visit
