The L. Douglas Wilder School of Government and Public Affairs at Virginia Commonwealth University is accepting nominations for the 2016 Excellence in Virginia Government Awards.

Begun in 2005, the awards honor individuals and organizations who have made noteworthy contributions to government and the betterment of the commonwealth.

Awards are given in seven categories: Community Enhancement, Hill-Robinson Expansion of Freedom, Innovation in Government, Lifetime Achievement, Public Information, Public-Private Partnership and Unsung Heroes.

Nominations will be accepted through July 1. Nominations received after that date will be considered for the 2017 program.

The awards luncheon will take place at the downtown Richmond Marriott on Nov. 30. The money raised through the event funds student scholarships at the Wilder School.
