Last year's winners were Hugh Brandenburg, John Long and Rollan Myers.
Brandenburg logged at least 40,000 hours as a volunteer at the Western Maryland Hospital Center. He chose the center's auxiliary as the beneficiary of the $5,000 endowment in his name.
Long, who died in March, primarily was responsible for creating and maintaining the railroad museum at City Park in Hagerstown. He picked the Humane Society of Washington County as a beneficiary.
Myers pledged his endowment fund to Arc of Washington County, which he served for more than 30 years.
