"There are many inspirational seniors in the Morwell electorate who are making an enormous contribution and achieving great things in our community," Mr Northe said.

"They may be community leaders or behind the scene workers for a friend, neighbour, family member or just someone that you know who is doing great work around your community.

"These awards provide a fabulous opportunity to recognise these people for the valuable contribution that they make," he said.

Anyone can nominate a senior that they admire, with entries open until Friday, 23 June 2017 across five Award categories:

  • Premier’s Award for Victorian Senior of the Year
  • Promotion of Multiculturalism Award
  • Healthy and Active Living Award
  • Veteran Community Award
  • Council on the Ageing (COTA) Victoria Senior Achiever Awards
  • Age-Friendly Victoria Award

  • Winners, including the Premier’s Award for Victorian Senior of the Year, will be announced at a ceremony at Government House in October. More information and nomination forms can be found at or by phoning 1300 135 090.
