It's time to give back, to our local unsung heros.
Nominations are now open for the 2018 Greater Shepparton Volunteer Recognition Awards, recognising the contribution and impact made by volunteers in our community.
Greater Shepparton Mayor Kim O’Keeffe said volunteers are the lifeblood of the community.
“Volunteers work across a wide range of sectors, including emergency services, education, sport, environment, the arts and many more.”

Previous winner have come from a range of sectors and industries, but all have one thing in common: They've made a wonderful contribution to society.
“I strongly encourage anyone who knows of a volunteer to nominate them for an award so they can be recognised for their contribution to our community.”
- Mayor Kim O'Keeffe
You can nominate a volunteer within six categories: Volunteer team, male volunteer, female volunteer, youth volunteer (for people aged between 12 and 25), rural volunteer (for towns with under 5,000 residents) and long serving volunteer.
Nominations for the awards close Friday 27 April ahead of the awards presentation during National Volunteer Week in May.
