About the Awards

The broad array of volunteering that takes place in Victoria is inspiring and the Awards celebrate volunteers across all ages and from all walks of life, and the wide range of services, activities and support they provide to Victorian people, communities and causes.

The Award categories are:

  • Leadership
  • Impact
  • Service

2016 recipients

60 volunteers were invited to Government House in December 2016 to be formally recognised for their outstanding achievements across five categories.

The Premier’s Volunteer of the Year, Dame Elisabeth Murdoch Award was selected from all Award recipients, and in 2016 the selection task was so difficult, two were chosen for their outstanding contribution!
