HEART AWARD

The Heart Award was started in 2018 in recognition of a volunteer who truly embodies the spirit of True/False Volunteerism: a kind and loyal heart, a commitment to chip in wherever needed, and a thoughtful and open mind. Each year, Core nominate volunteers they feel particularly exhibited this spirit of volunteerism and a finalist is chosen from that group. That dedicated volunteer is presented with the award during the Fest. 

PAST WINNERS:
