City of Logan Volunteers Awards

Each year more than 7,000 volunteers from our city show the strength of our community

Every year we hold a volunteers award. We have been doing this since 1988 to acknowledge the outstanding contributions of individuals and organisations in our community.

We are looking for extraordinary people in our community who have helped make Logan a thriving and diverse city.

We are seeking nominations from the community to acknowledge the achievements of an individual resident or a volunteer based organisation.

The following Awards are available:

Frank Lenz Memorial Award for Volunteer of the Year - This award will be presented in recognition of outstanding contribution as a volunteer in Logan City.

Davida Steele Memorial Award for an Outstanding Community Organisation - This award will be presented to a not-for-profit organisation, community group or program which has made a significant contribution to our community.
