Do you know someone in your community who volunteers their time and is passionate about making a difference?

Give them the recognition they deserve and nominate them for a Local Hero Award! The Local Hero Awards, presented by the City of Kalamunda, provide City-wide recognition for an active community member.

What does a Local Hero do?

A Local Hero could be someone who looks after a Reserve in your area, a champion and advocate for the environment, a volunteer with the local fire or emergency services, or those who give so much of their time looking after members in their community.

Nominations are open throughout the year and winners are picked monthly.

Nomination Categories

There are three categories up for nomination:

  • Senior Community Local Hero (65 years plus)
  • Community Local Hero (25-65 years old)
  • Young Local Hero (12-25 years old)

The monthly awards will culminate at the Annual Thank a Volunteer Ceremony (held in December) at which the Local Hero of the Year Award will be presented.

How to nominate

There are a number of ways for you to nominate your local hero:

Alternatively copies of the hard copy nomination form are available from all City Libraries and can be returned:

  • By Email: enquiries@kalamunda.wa.gov.au
  • By Post: PO Box 42, Kalamunda WA 6926
  • In Person: Administration, 2 Railway Road, Kalamunda WA 6926

Nominations close at the end of each month.
