Nominate now for Victorian Seniors Awards

Member for Lowan and Deputy Leader of The Nationals Emma Kealy is urging members of the community to consider nominating a local hardworking and dedicated senior volunteer for the upcoming Victorian Senior of the Year Awards.

Nominations are now open for the 2024 Awards which celebrate senior Victorians who share their skills, experience, time and energy with our community.

There are six categories of awards:

  • Victorian Senior of the Year - for outstanding contribution to the local community and Victoria
  • Promotion of Multiculturalism Award - for promoting the benefits of cultural diversity
  • Healthy and Active Living Award - for helping create active and healthy communities
  • Veteran Community Award - for exceptional contributions to the veteran community
  • Ageing Well Award - for combatting ageism and promoting ageing well initiatives
  • Council on the Ageing Victorian Senior Achiever Award - for significant contribution to local communities and Victoria

The award ceremony will be held in October, coinciding with the annual Victorian Seniors Festival.

Ms Kealy said that nominations can be submitted digitally until 11 August by completing the nomination form at seniorsonline.vic.gov.au/awards.

Nominees must be aged 60 years or over; or 50 years or over for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Victorians.

“All nominees will receive certificates acknowledging their contributions,” Ms Kealy said.
