Nominations are being sought for an award recognizing people who improve life in their communities by volunteering.

The second annual Volunteer Citizen of the Year Award sponsored by Direct Energy and Trib Total Media will include a $1,000 cash prize as well as a $5,000 donation to the community organization or cause designated by the winner.

The winner also will receive a commemorative award, and a story and photograph will be published in all Trib Total Media newspapers.

Last year's winner was Stacy Berkoben of Arnold, who was selected for her volunteer work with Animal Protectors of Allegheny Valley, an animal shelter in New Kensington.

“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to once again join hands with Trib Total Media to bring this wonderful award program to our city,” said Cory Byzewski, vice president and general manager for Direct Energy.

“We received so many impressive nominations last year and look forward to receiving more, and above all, honoring our second winner,” Byzewski said.

The award is open to residents of communities served by any Trib Total Media newspaper.

“The volunteerism from residents in the Pittsburgh area and their devotion to our communities is remarkable,” said Lindsay Berdell, director of promotions and marketing for Trib Total Media. “This program is a great way to showcase and appreciate these selfless volunteers.”
