The Calvert County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) announces that nominations are now being accepted for the annual Calvert You Are Beautiful Volunteer Awards.

This project recognizes individuals whose volunteer service improves the quality of life for Calvert County citizens and visitors.

Nominated volunteers might be a tour guide at a museum or historic landmark, someone who organizes a local fair, festival or parade, or the person committed to making a difference by giving generously of their time to hospices, hospitals, homeless and other social service agencies. All nominees must be residents of Calvert County.

Nomination forms are available online at or by calling the Department of Economic Development at 410-535-4583. Completed nomination forms should be returned to Calvert You Are Beautiful c/o Katie Brittain, Department of Economic Development, Courthouse, Prince Frederick, 20678. Applications must be postmarked or hand delivered to the Department of Economic Development by July 11, 2014.
