2018: Modris Ozolins.

Are you an organisation or community group who would like to say thanks to your dedicated volunteers? Recognising the work of volunteers is crucial.

It's all about letting them know you appreciate them and the work they do. The Premier’s Certificate of Recognition for Outstanding Volunteer Service program is a prestigious award to acknowledge and recognise excellence and significant achievement.

The certificate provides a great opportunity for volunteer-involving organisations and community groups to nominate one or more volunteers who have made an outstanding commitment and contribution to the community and/or their organisation. Last year, Modris Ozolins was honoured for his devotion to serving at the Quorn Ambulance Station as a volunteer with the South Australian Ambulance Service. Nominations for the 2019 Premier's Certificate of Recognition for Outstanding Volunteer Service are now open.

Nominations for this award opened on Monday, February 18, ,2019 and close at 5pm on Friday, 29, March 2019. Organisations and community groups will be notified by the Office of Volunteers of the outcome of their nomination in May 2019.

For more information, please contact the Office for Volunteers on 1300 014 712 or via email ofv@sa.gov.au.

The South Australian Volunteer Certificate of Appreciation is also available to all South Australian based organisations or community groups to acknowledge their volunteers. These certificates are available all year round.
