Do you know a Nillumbik community champion? You only have just under a month to nominate them for Council’s Nillumbik Community Awards!

The Nillumbik Community Awards recognise the outstanding service and achievements of individuals and community groups in Nillumbik, including:

  • Nillumbik Volunteer
  • Nillumbik Community Group
  • Nillumbik Young Citizen (under the age of 25)

There will also be awards recognising significant contributions in the following areas:

  • Contribution to Arts, Culture and Heritage
  • Contribution to Diversity and Inclusion
  • Contribution to Environment and Sustainability
  • Contribution to Reconciliation.

Deputy Mayor Karen Egan said Nillumbik’s exceptional volunteers deserve acknowledgement and celebration.

“Nominees and recipients of community awards often say what an honour it is to have their efforts recognised,” Cr Egan said.

“If you know someone who gives selflessly for the good of the community – whether it be through a group, club or other organisation, or on an individual level – please take the time to nominate them.”

Nominations close Sunday 2 June.

The award recipients will be announced at a celebration event on Thursday 22 August at the Eltham Community Reception Centre.
