2021 Greater Shepparton Volunteer Recognition Awards now open

Nominations for the Greater Shepparton Volunteer Recognition Awards are now open.


Currently in their eleventh year, the Volunteer Recognition Awards aim to recognise and thank volunteers who contribute their time and energy for the good of our community.

The Volunteer Recognition Awards have recently been reviewed and updated. The 2021 awards have revised award categories and a streamlined nomination form.

The 2021 Award categories are:

  • Young Volunteer: 12 to 25 years
  • Adult Volunteer: 26 years and over
  • Volunteer Team: A group of 2 or more people
  • Long Serving Volunteer: 15 years or more service

“The awards are a great way of recognising the contribution of volunteers across the Greater Shepparton area,” Mayor, Councillor Kim O’Keeffe said.

“Nominees and award recipients will be recognised during the Greater Shepparton Volunteer Recognition Awards ceremony to be held on Monday 17 May 2021.”

“I encourage everyone to consider nominating a volunteer for the awards.”

The ceremony will be conducted as allowed by the COVID restrictions at that time and will take place during Volunteer Week – Monday 17 to Sunday 23 May 2021.

The theme for Volunteer Week is ‘Recognise. Reconnect. Reimagine’.

The Volunteer Recognition Award guidelines and eligibility criteria can be found on Greater Shepparton City Council’s website here.
