The Volunteer of the Year awards are presented to volunteers for their outstanding contribution to the community in the Wodonga region.
Awards are given to recognise excellence in voluntary service and are intended to enhance public awareness and appreciation of the quality and depth of voluntary service in the community. The awards are not seeking to identify a ‘best volunteer’.
There are awards for an individual and team volunteers.
These awards consist of three components:
- Recognition of an outstandingly effective volunteer as the Volunteer of the Year, who will receive a certificate to commemorate his or her achievement;
- Recognition of individual category winners, who will each receive a trophy to commemorate his or her achievement; and,
- Recognition of an outstandingly effective team of volunteers as the Volunteer Team of the Year, who will receive a trophy to commemorate their achievement.
The Volunteer of the Year awards open in March.
