The Victorian Senior of the Year Awards acknowledge older Victorians who volunteer to assist, support and encourage others in their communities.

There are a number of award categories recognising seniors as mentors, educators, role models, leaders, or behind-the-scenes workers.

The categories are:

  • Premier’s Award for Victorian Senior of the Year to an individual for an outstanding contribution to their local community and Victoria.
  • Promotion of Multiculturalism Award to an individual for a significant contribution to promoting the benefits of cultural diversity in the community.
  • Healthy and Active Living Award to an individual for helping to create active and healthy communities through community involvement and as a role model.

  • Council on the Ageing (COTA) Victoria Senior Achiever Awards to individuals for significant contributions to local communities in Victoria.
  • Age-Friendly Victoria Award recognises an organisation for creating age-friendly communities, promoting active ageing and improving quality of life and inclusion for older people.
