The search for stand out senior Victorians has begun with nominations now open for the 2012 Victorian Senior of the Year Awards.
Minister for Ageing David Davis has invited people to nominate seniors who make a real difference to their local communities.
"Established more than 20 years ago, the Senior of the Year Awards promote the achievements of senior Victorians and demonstrate the benefits of positive ageing," Mr Davis said.
There are five awards categories: Premier's Award for Victorian Senior of the Year for an outstanding contribution to their local community and Victoria; Council on the Ageing (COTA) Victoria Senior Achiever Awards for significant contributions to their local communities and Victoria; Promotion of Multiculturalism Award for a significant contribution to promoting cultural diversity; Healthy and Active Living Award for helping create active and healthy communities; and, Veteran Community Award for an exceptional contribution to the veteran community.
The 2012 awards will be presented at a reception at Government House on October 5. The awards will be part of Victoria's celebrations for the United Nations International Day of Older Persons on October 1.
