Now in their 11th year, the volunteer awards recognise the contribution made to the community by volunteers.
Nominations can be made under six categories including:
- Volunteer team
- Male volunteer
- Female volunteer
- Youth volunteer (for people aged between 12 and 25)
- Rural volunteer (for towns with under 5,000 residents)
- Long serving volunteer
Greater Shepparton Mayor, Cr Seema Abdullah, said those willing to donate their time and effort are the lifeblood of the Greater Shepparton community.
“There are many different ways to volunteer, including in emergency services, education, sport, environment, the arts and many more,” Cr Abdullah said.
“Last year’s winners volunteered across a range of sectors and made a wonderful contribution to all areas of our society. But, we know there are many more volunteers out there who have been toiling away without recognition.
“We strongly encourage anyone who knows of a volunteer to nominate them for an award so they can be recognised for their contribution to our community.”
Nominations for the awards close Monday 23 March 2020.
An awards presentation will be held during National Volunteer Week in May. Nomination forms are available here, from Council’s Customer Service Counter, or by contacting Council’s Neighbourhoods Department on (03) 5832 9700.
