The 2019 Community Hero Award (in association with the Volunteer Ireland Awards) is a lifetime achievement award honouring a volunteer who has made an extraordinary contribution to a good cause over the course of their lifetimes.
How to Enter
This Award aims to shine a light on those remarkable individuals who, year after year, dedicate their time and energy to supporting a community and voluntary organisation, club or association.
The ten longest serving volunteers from the 30 shortlisted nominees of the Volunteer Ireland Awards are eligible to be selected for the Community Hero Award.
From 29 October, the public will have a chance to vote for the shortlisted nominees. At the same time, a panel of judges will evaluate the shortlisted nominees.
A winner will be chosen in each sub-category based on both the judges’ evaluation and the number of votes registered.
A single winner will be announced at our Awards Ceremony in Dublin on 10 December.
