Senior Victorian of the year
Victorians are being urged to nominate outstanding seniors who make a remarkable difference to their communities for the 2011 Victorian Senior of the Year Awards
Victorians are being urged to nominate outstanding seniors who make a remarkable difference to their communities for the 2011 Victorian Senior of the Year Awards.
If you know someone in the community, in service organisations, local councils and just everyday seniors doing their bit and for their selfless and tireless contribution to the community, get them to nominate themselves. "These awards give us an opportunity to recognise the tireless volunteer services of older people across Victoria," Minister for Ageing David Davis said.
To be eligible for an award, nominees must be over 60 years of age, an Australian citizen, a resident of Victoria and have made an exceptional contribution to their community. There are a number of awards for which seniors can be recognised. The Premier's Award for Victorian Senior of the Year is presented to the individual who has made an outstanding contribution to their local community and Victoria.
All nominees are also eligible for the Council on the Ageing (COTA) Victoria Senior Achiever Awards. These awards celebrate seniors whose talents, achievements and contributions have significantly benefited their communities. The Healthy and Active Living Award is presented to a senior who is helping to build an active and healthy community, while the Veteran Community Award is presented to a senior who has made an exceptional contribution to veterans. But there is a new award that recognises the large part seniors play in advancing the benefits of cultural diversity.
"The Promotion of Multiculturalism Award will be presented to a senior who has made a significant contribution to promoting the benefits of cultural diversity in their local community or to the broader community of Victoria," Davis said.
Nomination forms can be obtained from Seniors Information Victoria, phone 1300 135 090 or visit www.seniors.vic.gov.au. Nominations close on 22 July 2011.
