During National Volunteer Week, the City of Fishers celebrates the dedicated volunteers and individuals who have donated their time and talent to our community with the 2021 City of Service Awards.

This year’s awards feature four community nominated awards selected by the Fishers City Council through a blind process: Essential Worker of the Year, Community Servant of the Year, Non-Profit Staffer of the Year, and Non-Profit Volunteer of the Year, as well as awards for volunteers from City departments.
