Do you know a Local Legend?

You are invited to nominate volunteers who are making an outstanding contribution to the community of Strathbogie Shire.

Our hope is that by making the nomination process easy, the community will feel encouraged to share their stories about the local legends they admire, and we can celebrate their achievements together as a community.

Time is no barrier - volunteers can be just starting their volunteer journey or those with generations of experience and commitment.

The Strathbogie Shire Local Legends Initiative is inclusive. There are no specific categories. Nominations will be received from June 1 to September 30 2024.

Who do you know in your community who inspires others and who has enabled your community organisation to be stronger because of their everyday actions!

So many people deserve to be nominated, but they can only be nominated by YOU!

A Strathbogie Shire Local Legend will have:

  • Made an outstanding voluntary contribution that has had a positive impact on the Strathbogie Shire community.
  • Been an inspirational role model to the community.
  • Been involved with a community group or activity that has improved people’s lives.
  • Given their consent for the nomination.

The Strathbogie Shire Local Legends will have their volunteering story shared publicly to celebrate their contribution, community connection and legacy.

The volunteer organisation of the Local Legend will also be celebrated to promote volunteering opportunities at their organisation as well as the health and wellbeing benefits of volunteering.

Nominations received will be assessed monthly and if they meet the criteria the Nominee will be granted Strathbogie Shire Local Legend status!
