Residents and community groups are being encouraged to recognise the contributions made to our community by seniors by nominating them for the Victorian Senior of the Year Awards.
Labor Member for Wendouree, Juliana Addison, has announced nominations are open for the awards that highlight the role of seniors who inspire others as mentors, educators, role models, leaders or others who make a great contribution.
Categories include the Premier’s Award for Victorian Senior of the Year, the Promotion of Multiculturalism Award, the Healthy and Active Living Award, the Veteran Community Award, the Council on the Ageing Victoria Senior Achiever Award and the Age-Friendly Victoria Award.
Ms Addison said seniors make a valuable contribution to everyday life across the Ballarat region.
“The Victorian Senior of the Year Awards are a great way to recognise seniors and organisations in Ballarat who contribute to our community,” Ms Addison said.
“Nominees could be a volunteer in your organisation, a friend, neighbour or family member, or just someone you see doing good work around your community,” she said.
The 2019 award recipients will be honoured at a ceremony at Government House as part of the 37th Victorian Seniors Festival this October.
Nominations are open until 5 July.
