Seeking nominations for Recognition/Appreciation Awards 2021

From 2021, the Volunteer Appreciation Awards will be jointly selected by the National Arboretum Canberra and Friends of the National Arboretum, recognising the amazing contribution that our team of supporters makes to the Arboretum each year. Nominees and winners will be announced at the End-of-Year Thankyou event for Friends and Volunteers on Monday 13 December.

There are two categories of award:

Volunteer of the Year – recognising the outstanding service by a Volunteer to a number of activities. Their contribution may stand out through leadership, strong commitment or excellence across a number of volunteering activities.

Attached are both the nomination forms for Sterling Service awards and for the Volunteer of the Year award.
