There are many people and organisations in our local community doing great work helping others; whether that’s in a community organisation, a sports club, church or school, assisting our senior citizens or mentoring our kids.
Often their activities go unnoticed and that’s why I am pleased to announce nominations for my annual Volunteer Awards are now open.
All community groups, schools and clubs in the Federal Electorate of Port Adelaide are invited to nominate volunteers for the 2017 Volunteer Recognition Award, Youth Encouragement Award and Local Legends Prize.
Nominations should be received by my office by COB Friday 21 April and forms can be found at the bottom of the page.
Volunteer Recognition Award
An organisation may nominate up to two volunteers to receive a Recognition Award. All nominees who live or work in the Federal Electorate of Port Adelaide will receive a certificate at the awards ceremony.
Youth Encouragement Award
The Youth Encouragement Award recognises those under 25 years of age who volunteer in their local community. An organisation may nominate up to two volunteers to receive a Youth Encouragement Award. All nominees who live or work in the Federal Electorate of Port Adelaide will receive a certificate at the awards ceremony.
Local Legends Prize
The Local Legends Prize recognises and celebrates the work of volunteers who have made an exceptional contribution to their community over many years. The Local Legends Prize is open to individuals living or volunteering in the Federal Electorate of Port Adelaide at the time of nomination.
