Moonee Valley Neighbourhood Spirit Awards Nominations

Neighbourhood Spirit Awards 2022 - Nominations now open

Do you know someone who makes your neighbourhood a better place? Then tell us about them!

The Moonee Valley Neighbourhood Spirit Awards celebrate those people who have contributed to their local community across Moonee Valley’s neighbourhoods.

We want to recognise people across the City who are making a difference to others living in the Moonee Valley community – big or small.

You can nominate an individual or community group as long as they:

  • Live, work, study or play in Moonee Valley
  • Are not a direct relation to a Councillor
  • Are not a Moonee Valley City Council staff member or current/former Councillor

Nominations close Friday, 26 November.

The Moonee Valley Neighbourhood Spirit Award winners will be announced in March 2022.
