Neighbourhood Spirit Awards
Nominate someone for an award
The 2020 Neighbourhood Spirit Awards were due to be presented at the Neighbour Day Community Picnic on 29 March. Unfortunately due to the current state of emergency regarding COVID-19, this event was cancelled and the announcements did not take place.
We are very pleased to now make these announcements and present our 2020 Neighbourhood Spirit Award winners, including the 2020 Citizen of the Year. Our Councillors have prepared special video messages to announce each winner.
Congratulations 2020 Neighbourhood Spirit award winners
The Moonee Valley Neighbourhood Spirit Awards are Council’s opportunity to celebrate those who have contributed to their local community across Moonee Valley’s 13 neighbourhoods.
The community have submitted nominations from all corners of the City. These nominations were assessed by the Neighbourhood Spirit Special Committee. We would like to thank and congratulate all of the nominees for making a difference in their neighbourhood.
It is with great pleasure that we announce the 13 recipients of the 2020 Neighbourhood Spirit Awards.
