Don’t Wait……Nominate!
Celebrating 21 Years of Service Above Self Youth Awards

Service Above Self

Established in 1995, Service Above Self is a program that recognizes young people in Rowan County for their volunteer work. The Rowan County United Way and Rowan Rotary sponsor the program based on the Rotary International’s motto of “Service Above Self.”

Young people may be nominated for any type of service they do. Those who can nominate include, but are not limited to, teachers, mentors, tutors, neighbors, youth group leaders, scout troop leaders, grandparents and parents. Students may be nominated for such service as picking up a neighbor’s paper and bringing it to the door, reading to an elderly person, raking a person’s leaves, or visiting a nursing home.
