Nominations Open For NSW Volunteer Awards

Written by: The Cowra Phoenix


Member for Cootamundra Steph Cooke is calling for nominations for the 2024 NSW Volunteer of the Year Awards, held to honour the quiet achievers in the community.

Ms Cooke said the award – now in its 17th year – aims to recognise the outstanding contributions of volunteers across New South Wales who selflessly dedicate their time and effort to make a positive impact in their communities.

“Volunteers play a crucial role in building stronger, more connected communities, and their tireless dedication deserves recognition and appreciation,” Ms Cooke said.

“Whether it’s supporting local charities, mentoring youth, or advocating for important causes, volunteers are the backbone of our society; they are the unsung heroes who work tirelessly behind the scenes to make our communities better places to live.

Ms Cooke said there are eight categories for the awards, with nominations open until Friday 14 June 2024. Winners will be announced at a ceremony to be held later this year.

“I encourage everyone to take this opportunity to nominate the outstanding volunteers in our communities; let’s celebrate their remarkable contributions and inspire others to join the spirit of volunteerism,” Ms Cooke said.
