In addition, in celebration of Canberra’s 100th Birthday, there is a special category to nominate an individual who has contributed over 50 years of voluntary service to our community.

Andrew Barr, Minister for Community Services said “We hope to see many organisations across Canberra taking the opportunity to publicly recognise the volunteers who contribute so much to our community everyday and who are the essence of what Canberra is all about.”

”It was such an honour to be recognised as the 2012 Volunteer of the Year, something that I will carry with me forever.” said Dr Mary Webb, 2012 Volunteer of the Year.

“We are delighted to again be hosting the ACT Volunteer of the Year Awards, especially in such a special year to reflect on all that volunteers have done to make our city what it is today” said Maureen Cane, CEO of Volunteering ACT.
