Call for Celebrating Community Awards nominations

Published on Sunday, 7 August 2022 at 1:43:00 PM

Last year the Shire of Mundaring celebrated the significant contribution 22 volunteers made to the community when they were presented with Celebrating Community Awards. 

Nominations for the 2022 Celebrating Community Awards are set to open on Monday 15 August, with residents invited to nominate an individual, business or group in one of four categories. 

Shire President James Martin said acknowledging the contribution of community members was a great pleasure and this year would be no different. 

“I look forward to once again celebrating the incredible hard work, dedication and sacrifice of volunteers within our community” he said. 


“I encourage everyone to participate by showcasing the significant contributions of individuals or groups in the following categories.”

  • Rising Star (under 25): Recognises young people (individual/group) who have made a significant contribution to their local community.
  • Inspirational Volunteer: Recognises an individual/group who through their volunteering role have made an outstanding contribution to the local community.
  • Access Mundaring: Recognises an individual or group that is making a difference to create a more accessible and inclusive Shire of Mundaring.
  • Long Service: Recognises an individual or group who have been community champions and continuously served their community in excess of ten years.

Cr Martin said presenting awards to groups and individuals was always a privilege.

“Last year we celebrated 15 Inspirational Volunteer Award recipients and seven Long Service Award recipients,” he said.

 “All of the recipients were recognised for their significant contributions to the local community.”

Celebrating Community Awards will be presented to coincide with International Volunteer Day on Monday 5 December this year.

Nominees who made a noteworthy contribution during the current year, or nominees who gave outstanding service to the local community over a number of years through active involvement will then be considered for the annual Shire of Mundaring Citizenship Awards. These awards are presented at Australia Day celebrations on Thursday 26 January 2023.
