Mayor Greg Ballard will once again recognize Indianapolis residents for their volunteer contributions and commitment to community service with the 2010 Mayor's Community Service Awards.

"Our city is known for the spirit of community and giving. Our residents give of their time and talent for causes that continually better our community," said Mayor Ballard. "It is through the tireless work and positive contributions of so many of our resident volunteers that continue to make Indianapolis a wonderful place to call home."

The Mayor's Community Service Awards, a prestigious honor given by the Mayor's Office, aims to recognize the positive impact of residents for the overall betterment of the community. Marion County residents may be nominated in one of several categories including: Arts, Business, Church, Education, Elderly, Health/Hospitals, Media, Neighborhood, Philanthropy, Special Needs, Sports, and Youth Services.

Mayor Ballard will honor the award recipients at a special ceremony in the fall of 2010. The names of each recipient will be engraved on individual bricks to be placed at the Mayor's Volunteer Plaza on the Downtown Canal basin.

Nominations for the 2010 Mayor's Community Service Awards are open to those residing in Marion County and will be accepted through Friday, August 27, 2010. Contact Douglas Hairston at for more information.
