Special Volunteer Award & Youth Award
Every year SGC recognizes volunteers that have been generous with their time, effort, and talents to promote German culture in the province. Volunteers – the heart of our community!
The SGC Special Volunteer Awards have been presented to outstanding volunteers in Saskatchewan’s German-Canadian community since 2000. The Council’s member organizations can submit an application for a special volunteer from their organization.
The SGC Special Volunteer Awards are handed out at the Special Volunteer Awards Banquet during the annual Treffpunkt weekend in June.
