Awards and Ceremonies

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. The awards are held each year in May.

Congratulations to the award recipients for 2021. We received over 70 nominations across six categories up to an incredible 10 000 hours of service.

Glenorchy Community Awards

Nominations for the 2022 awards are open now!

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 Awards will be presented in the following categories:

  • Citizen of the Year
  • Young Citizen of the Year
  • Community Group of the Year
  • School Group of the Year
  • Sports Achievement Award, and
  • All Abilities Award.

Nominations are invited between 17 September and 12 November and Council staff are happy to assist with the nomination process if required. You can download the nomination form and guidelines using the buttons below.

A special awards presentation will be held in January 2022, to celebrate all award nominees and recipients.
