It’s the 20th Anniversary of Spirit!
Help us celebrate 20 years by nominating an individual, group, or organization that makes New Hampshire a great place through their volunteerism and promotion of volunteerism.
In honor of our two decades, we’ll also be presenting a “Lifetime Achievement” award to one person whose dedication to service has lasted through the years.
