Volunteering plays an integral role in supporting any community and now the public is encouraged to recognise the loyal service given through the SA Volunteer awards.
Stuart MP Dan Van Host Pellekaan urges people to nominate community members, groups and businesses who they believe play an important role in their community as volunteers, with nominations now open.
Award categories are:
- The Joy Noble Medal is South Australia’s highest distinction for recognising the outstanding efforts for an individual volunteer.
- The Premier’s Award for Corporate Social Responsibility recognises the strong contribution South Australian businesses make to the community through philanthropy, partnerships and corporate volunteering.
- ‘The Andamooka’ Community Project Award will be awarded to a volunteer project resulting in significant community benefit.
The awards will be presented at a special Volunteers Day event on June 11, 2018.
Any member of the public can nominate eligible recipients for these awards and self-nominations are accepted. Applicants will be notified of the outcome of their nomination/s in May.
Nominations close 5pm Monday, March 19, 2018
