Since 1978, KARK-TV, the Arkansas Department of Human Services Division of Volunteerism, and the Office of the Governor have recognized individuals and companies that serve others in extraordinary ways. These special Arkansans are honored for their volunteer work with the Community Service Awards, which includes an annual ceremony televised by KARK-TV and presented by Duncan Law Firm.
The broadcast highlights each winner's contributions to the community.
KARK Anchors Bob Clausen and Ashley Ketz will serve as the co-emcees of the televised event, and other members of the KARK Team will participate by telling the stories of some of the winners. Governor and Mrs. Asa Hutchinson will also present featured awards
Nominees are submitted by the general public, and winners are chosen by a panel which includes members of the DHS Division of Volunteerism Office.
The Award Ceremony takes place this year on June 10th.
