All submitted Victorian Senior of the Year Award nominations are carefully read and discussed by the Selection Panel.
Here are some ideas to consider when putting together a nomination. The examples below are a guide not a comprehensive list – we encourage you to use them if suitable or to describe other examples relevant to your nominee.
- Where has your nominee volunteered?
List all the organisations your nominee has worked for and the titles of roles, if applicable.
For example, secretary, co-ordinator, fund raiser.
Outline the work the nominee has undertaken.
For example, what are the tasks and responsibilities they took on?
- What has been the impact of their work on members of the organisation and/or the community?
- For example, have they encouraged or supported people in the organisation or the wider community?
How has their work impacted on the community? For example have they provided a service, run programs, helping people to access the community, made a community space more enjoyable to use.
- Does your nominee have additional personal responsibilities in their own life?
- For example, do they care for grandchildren or parents.
- Do they have a disability or had an illness that they have to manage.
- Provide a minimum of two supporting documents.
- These documents can be newspaper articles, Facebook stories or letters that highlight their work, achievements or their standing in the community.
