Tasmanian Volunteering Awards launched for 2019

As part of our International Volunteer Day celebrations, Premier Will Hodgman officially launched the 2019 Tasmanian Volunteering Awards.

The Awards now in their fourth year, are Tasmania’s only state-wide awards program that formally recognises excellence in volunteering and showcases inspiring stories of individual and organisational volunteering across our State.

The Premier said “The Government is a strong supporter of our wonderful volunteers and volunteer organisations and the Awards are about reflecting on the important contribution Volunteers make to our State.

“Communities and individuals are encouraged to take the time to nominate a volunteer in the 10 available award categories.”

Nominations are now officially open! Visit this webpage to see all the Award Categories and to start nominating.

The Awards would not be possible without the support of our sponsors. Our gratitude goes to Anglicare Tasmania, Aurora Energy, Bulk Nutrients, CatholicCare Tasmania, Hydro Tasmania, Lifeline Tasmania, Spirit of Tasmania and TasTAFE; and of course our major partner Tasmanian Government and our wonderful media partner Southern Cross Austereo.
