Nominations for the 2016 Volunteer of the Year Awards are now open!
Our school communities are often fortunate enough to have team of enthusiastic parent helpers. Helpers in the library, sports, canteen, P&F and the school board are all volunteers in disguise. These contributions are vital for a thriving school community. However we don’t always view these “helpers” as volunteers nor do we regularly acknowledge their contribution.
Why not acknowledge this valuable and selfless support and nominate an individual or a whole team within your school community?
Details on how to apply can be found on the ACT Volunteering website – link here.
There are eight categories open for nominations for both individuals and volunteer teams, as once again Volunteering ACT seeks to recognise those in the Canberra region who make a valuable contribution.
To nominate a Volunteer, Volunteer team or to nominate a Volunteer under 18 please call ACT Volunteering on 6251 4060.
Please read the Guidelines for the 2016 ACT Volunteer of the Year Awards before submitting your nomination form.
Nominations close on Wednesday, 23 March 2016.
Once completed please submit your nomination form to firstname.lastname@example.org and ensure that the checklist on each nomination form has been completed.
