Published on 03 October 2022
Great news! We've extended our nomination date to Friday 14 October to make sure we receive nominations for all those who are making a difference in our community.
The awards recognise a local initiative, club, business, service or person of any age who contributes to building a stronger local community for older people who live, work or visit the Mornington Peninsula.
Nominations are welcome from all members of the community including friends, families and carers who want to nominate persons or organisations who actively demonstrate attitudes and actions which encourage our age-friendly values. Organisations, and clubs are also encouraged to make nominations.
Nomination categories include:
- Senior Achiever Award
Do you know a person aged 50+ who has made a significant contribution to our local community? One special person will also be awarded Mayor’s Elder of the Year Award.
- PACE Community Award
Does your local community organisation or club offer an innovative and age-friendly program? Do you work with someone who encourages diversity and inclusive opportunities? Perhaps a local business goes over and above to help you? Let us know about them!
- Intergenerational Award
We can all learn from each other at any age so nominate your favourite service, group, business, or person who has brought people of all ages together.
Nominations for our Delys Sargeant Age-Friendly Awards close on Friday 14 October 2022. Nominate today.
