2019 Victorian Senior of the Year Awards

20 May 2019
Nominations for the 2019 Victorian Senior of the Year Awards are open until 5 July 2019.
If you know an older Victorian who makes a difference in their community; a leader who inspires others, is a behind-the-scenes organiser, or a person who does the hands-on work to deliver services, you can nominate them for a Victorian Senior of the Year Award.
