Grants and Awards

Volunteer Awards Open

23rd April 2018

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 in the Victorian Champions Awards.

“The awards recognise and reward the tireless efforts of the many volunteers who keep our communities strong,” said Mr Walsh.

“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 $10,000 to go towards a charity of their choice and receive the Dame Elisabeth Murdoch Award.

Nominations close on Monday 28th May at 5 pm.
