Nominations for the 2008 NSW Volunteer of the Year Award are closing soon. The 2008 NSW Volunteer of the Year Award is a unique opportunity to recognise and publicly acknowledge the invaluable work done by the hundreds of thousands of volunteers in NSW.

It showcases of active volunteers who have shown dedication and initiative in their work and have positively contributed to the Not for Profit organisation there volunteer for.

The NSW Volunteer of the Year Award program recognises and rewards those in our community who unselfishly contribute to a better community and is run by The Centre for Volunteering, the state’s peak body for volunteering. Minister for Volunteering, the Hon. Linda Burney is the Award patron.

The Award celebrates the 1.6 million people who contribute to the NSW community by giving up their spare time to help others. Launched last year by The Centre for Volunteering, the NSW Volunteer of the Year Award is open to anyone who volunteers three hours a week or more to any NSW community based not-for-profit organisation.

This means the Award could be won by any one of a third of the NSW population who spend time helping others in activities as varied as:

– sports coaching at schools or clubs in any code or discipline
– emergency work with SES, Surf lifesaving or the Rural Fire Brigade
– social and community-based activities, such as hospital visiting or assistance to stressed people or the homeless; or
– fundraising or assisting in the administration of any branch or any organisation – such as helping in fundraising shops or staffing secretarial and switchboard services.

Nominations for the 2008 awards close on Tuesday, 30 September 2008 and can be made online by visiting http://www.volunteering.com.au/nsw_volunteer_awards/index.asp

The winners will be announced on International Volunteers Day, 5 December.
