The Award recognises individual volunteers (with special awards for youth and senior volunteers), volunteer teams, corporate volunteers, corporate volunteer teams and not-for-profit organisations.

There five major categories of award are:

2013 NSW Volunteer of the Year Award

With special Awards for the NSW Youth and Senior Volunteers of the Year

  • 2013 NSW Youth Volunteer of the Year *
  • 2013 NSW Senior Volunteer of the Year *

This is the major category and is open to any volunteer who meets the criteria. Under each category, 19 regional winners will be awarded, from which the State winners will be selected. All Regional Nominees will be presented with a nominee certificate at the Regional Ceremonies.

*If you are nominating an individual youth or senior volunteer, please nominate them in the 2013 NSW Volunteer of the Year Award category. The Youth and Senior Volunteer of the Year Awards are Judges Choice Awards and are selected at the judges' discretion if there are outstanding Youth or Senior volunteers in your region. All nominees are eligable to win the 2013 NSW Volunteer of the Year Award and the Youth and Senior Award winners are only chosen after the region's most outstanding volunteer of the year has been selected and awarded the 2013 (Your Region) Volunteer of the Year Award. The 2012 State winners will be selected from the regional individual, youth and senior award winners.
