CHICAGO -- Know a great community volunteer? The Illinois governor's office is looking for nominees for the fourth annual Governor's Volunteer Service Awards.

The awards recognize individuals who give their time and talents to strengthen their communities. For the first time, businesses that support community service also will be recognized.

There are separate awards for youth, adult and senior volunteers in each of five regions in the state. One award will be given to a business in each of the five regions.

Nomination forms are available online at the website of the Serve Illinois Commission on Volunteerism and Community Service.

Winners will be honored at an April ceremony at the Illinois Executive Mansion.
