Victorian Senior of the Year nominations open

Do you know an older Victorian who contributes to their community you wish to nominate for Victorian Senior of the Year?

Last year Barry Witmitz received the Healthy and Active Living Award.  He is President of the Kaniva Men’s Shed, and the local footy club – just two of the many local organisations he is involved with. Barry provides strong leadership in many local activities, particularly those associated with helping people to remain active and engaged in their community.

Other Victorian award categories include:

  • Premier’s Award for Victorian Senior of the Year
  • Healthy Active Living Award
  • Veterans’ Community Award – this person does not have to be a veteran
  • COTA Victoria Senior Achiever Awards
  • Age-Friendly Victoria Award – for organisations or businesses

The Age-Friendly Victoria Award is given to an organisation or businesses that support and encourage older Victorians to participate in their community. Perhaps you know an organisation that has assisted you to participate or engage in the wider community. You can nominate them for this award to have their good work recognised.

To make a nomination just download a nomination form.
