Get ready to celebrate volunteers
Every December, around International Volunteer Day, VolunteeringACT proudly hosts the premier recognition event for volunteers in the Canberra region, the Volunteering Awards.
Volunteer managers, volunteers, leaders and friends can nominate outstanding individuals and teams of volunteers as a way of honouring their efforts and important contributions to the ACT community.
The ceremony makes visible stories of spirit, kindness, innovation, inclusion and resilience that inspire our whole community. Last year, the event received over 80 nominations, including individuals and teams across nine award categories.
This year we have nine categories and are seeking the community’s support to make it to 100 nominations!
We encourage everyone to acknowledge the vital work of volunteers by nominating them in the various award categories for 2023.
VolunteeringACT encourages First Nations peoples to nominate or be nominated in the Volunteering Awards as we recognise that helping out is inherent within Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures.
Please be aware that we have prepared a Nomination Guide with helpful information. We invite you to review it before submitting your nominations.
We look forward to seeing you at the 2023 Volunteering Awards ceremony!
