Nominate for National Volunteer Awards
5 September 2012 at 12:59 pm

The Federal Government has launched the 2012 National Volunteer Awards which recognise and celebrate Australia’s volunteers.

The Minister for Ageing and Social Inclusion, Mark Butler, said the Awards recognise the contribution of over six million Australians who volunteer in communities across the country, including for the first time a seniors category, as recommended by the Advisory Panel on the Economic Potential of Senior Australians.

“We rely heavily on people who generously volunteer their time, energy and expertise to deliver services across welfare, sport, disability, emergency services, human rights and environmental sectors, to name just a few,” Butler said.

The 2012 National Volunteer Awards will call on Australians to nominate exceptional volunteers in their community who donate their time to assist Not for Profit organisations.

Federal MP’s will accept nominations throughout September and October and will host award ceremonies across the country to celebrate the achievements of local volunteering heroes.

Volunteer award categories include:
1. MP’s Volunteer of the Year
2. Junior Volunteer Award (17 and under)
3. Youth Volunteer Award (18-25)
4. Senior Volunteer Award (65 and over)
5. Business Volunteer Award
6. Education Award
7. Emergency Management Volunteer Award
8. Environment Award
9. Innovation in Volunteering Award (organisation or individual)
10. Long–term Commitment to Community Service Award.
