The 2017 South Australian Volunteers Awards program are now open for applications. The Awards, which recognise the invaluable work that volunteers, community organisations and businesses contribute to the South Australian community, will be presented at a special Volunteers Day event to be held in June 2017. 


Nominations can be made in the following categories:

  • The Joy Noble Medal. South Australia's highest distinction for an individual volunteer and is open to all individual volunteers across the State. 
  • The Premier's Award for Corporate Social Responsibility. This award recognises the strong contribution the corporate sector makes to our communities in different ways, such as through philanthropy, partnerships and corporate volunteering.
  • 'The Andamooka' Community Project Award. Awarded to a community, or group of volunteers, which has undertaken a community project resulting in significant community benefit.

Any member of the public can nominate eligible recipients for these awards, and self-nominations are accepted. 

Guidelines and the online nomination forms are available on the Office for Volunteers website at www.ofv.sa.gov.au. The closing date for nominations is Friday 21 April 2017.

Applicants will be notified by the Office for Volunteers of the outcome of their nomination(s) in May 2017.
