If you know a hard-working volunteer in the community, consider nominating them for one of this year’s Victorian Premier’s Volunteer Champions Awards.
The prestigious awards will recognise up to 60 volunteers of different ages and cultural backgrounds, in the categories of leadership, impact, service, and teamwork.
A category winner will then be announced as the overall Premier’s Volunteer of the Year, and will receive the Dame Elizabeth Murdoch Award and a $10000 government donation to a charity of their choice.
‘‘Victorians don’t shy away from lending a hand and giving back to the community, which is why we have more than 1.5million volunteers across the state — this is a chance to say thank you,’’ Families and Children Minister Jenny Mikakos said.
Award nominations close on August 14, while the awards ceremony will be held in December to coincide with the International Day of the Volunteer.
