Our community achieves great things everyday. Here are some ways in which we can acknowledge the contribution of those enriching Glenorchy’s culture, identity and community.
Glenorchy Volunteer Awards
The Glenorchy Volunteer Awards were established in 1994 to acknowledge the efforts of volunteers within the community, and to encourage the growth and recognition of volunteering.

Glenorchy Community Awards
The annual Glenorchy Community Awards recognise and celebrate outstanding achievements by people in the Glenorchy community. Organised by Glenorchy City Council, the Community Awards were expanded last year to include several new categories, giving more opportunities to nominate people and groups from the Glenorchy local government area who are doing great things.
The 2022 Community Award winners are:
- Citizen of the Year – Eric Myers
- Young Citizen of the Year – Eli Morrison
- Community Group of the Year – Lions Club of Glenorchy City
- School Group of the Year – (joint winners) Student Representative Council at Springfield Gardens Primary and E-Team at Rosetta Primary
- Sports Achievement Award – John Clarke and Judy Latham (Glenorchy Rodman Bowls Club)
- All Abilities Award – Luke Rand
Nominations closed in November 2021.
A special awards presentation was held in January 2022, to celebrate all award nominees and recipients. Mayor of Glenorchy Bec Thomas announced the winners in an online video due to COVID restrictions preventing an in person ceremony.
We hold several ceremonies throughout the year where new Australian citizens are officially welcomed into our community. Conferees are contacted by Council approximately 4 weeks before their ceremony date. To enquire about upcoming citizenship ceremony dates please contact our Community department on 03 6216 6800.
