2017 Victorian Senior of the Year Awards

Nominations for the 2017 Victorian Senior of the Year Awards are now open.

The Victorian Senior of the Year Awards acknowledge older Victorians who volunteer to assist, support and encourage others in their communities. There are a number of award categories recognising seniors as mentors, educators, role models, leaders, or behind the scenes workers.

Categories for individuals include the Premier’s Award for Victorian Senior of the Year, the Promotion of Multiculturalism Award, the Healthy and Active Living Award, the Veteran Community Award and the Council on the Ageing (COTA) Senior Achiever Awards.

There is also the Age-Friendly Victoria Award to recognise an organisation or a business that creates age-friendly communities, promotes active ageing, or improves quality of life for older Victorians.

Nominations close on Friday 23 June and the 2017 Awards will be presented at a ceremony at Government House in October, as part of the 35th Victorian Seniors Festival.
