​President's Volunteer Service Award

About the President's Service Award

In recognition of your outstanding volunteer achievements, SIEO is proud to announce the availability of the President's Volunteer Service Award, a prestigious national honor offered in recognition of volunteer commitment.

Established in 2003, this award is given by the President of the United States and honors individuals, families and groups who have demonstrated a sustained commitment to volunteer service over the course of 12 months.

To qualify for the President's Volunteer Service Award, volunteers simply submit a record of their service hours to SIEO by April 1, we will verify the service, and deliver the award in May of each year

Volunteer service hours are not limited to those performed on behalf of SIEO. In fact, service hours can be accumulated through work on a variety of projects throughout the year. The only requirement is that the necessary hours be completed within 12 months; recipients can qualify for a new award each year.
