Awards Open for Volunteers
Thursday, 13th June 2019
Leader of The Nationals and Member for Murray Plains Peter Walsh is encouraging his constituents in the Murray Plains Electorate to nominate a valued volunteer for the Volunteer Champions Award.
“The awards recognise and reward the tireless efforts of the many volunteers who keep our rural communities strong,” Mr Walsh said.
“We depend on a wide range of volunteers for social support, safety, education, sports, and recreation across the electorate and it would be great to see some receiving public recognition.
There are four award categories :
Impact – volunteers who have delivered a significant improvement or achievement for their organisation, sector or community through their service
Leadership – volunteers with or without formal leadership positions who have succeeded in bringing groups of people together to solve a problem or provide a service to the community
Service – celebrating volunteers who have dedicated their efforts over a significant period of time
Teamwork – for groups of volunteers that through collaboration and teamwork have delivered exceptional results for their project, organisation or community.
The State winner will receive the Dame Elisabeth Murdoch Award.
