You can recognise the efforts of local people who make a difference in our community by nominating them for a Boroondara citizen or volunteer award. 

2023 City of Boroondara Citizen Awards

Is there someone you know who makes a positive difference to our community? Nominations will soon open for the 2023 City of Boroondara Citizen of the Year Award and Young Citizen of the Year Award.

These awards allow the community to pay tribute to friends, neighbours or colleagues who show exceptional leadership or commitment towards improving the lives of others in Boroondara. You can nominate people like community leader Greg Buchanan, our 2022 Citizen of the Year. Our joint Young Citizens of the Year for 2022 are Rhea Werner and Belinda Battey.

Nominations open on 16 September and close on 25 November, with winners announced at the Boroondara Australia Day citizenship ceremony on 26 January 2023.

2023 Boroondara Volunteer Awards

Boroondara is full of generous locals, with one of the strongest rates of volunteering in Greater Melbourne. More than 18% of Boroondara residents generously gave up time to support the work of local community organisations in the 12 months prior to the 2021 Census.

Now’s the time to recognise their efforts. If you know one of these inspirational volunteers or programs making a real difference in the City of Boroondara, nominate them for the Boroondara Volunteer Awards.

This year there are 2 categories:

  • Boroondara Volunteer of the Year
  • Volunteer Program Impact Award.

Nominations are open until Friday 7 October and anyone can nominate. Winners will be announced at a celebration event in December.
