Inaugural playgroup awards launched


Playgroup Victoria has called for entries in their inaugural Playgroup Awards. 

As a non-profit organisation that helps families find a playgroup for their child, Playgroup Victoria is launching the awards to acknowledge outstanding community and supported playgroups. To participate, anyone may nominate their playgroup, committee or an individual for an award.

The event is divided into both community and supported playgroups.

For community playgroups, there is the Community Playgroup of the Year (1-4 sessions), Community Playgroup of the Year (5+ sessions), Community Playgroup Leader of the Year and Community Committee of the Year. The categories for supported playgroups are Supported Playgroup of the Year, Supported Playgroup Facilitator of the Year, Supported Playgroup Coordinator of the Year and Playgroup Agency of the Year.

There will also be an award for the 2013 Playgroup of the Year, which will receive the Minister’s Award for Innovation and Excellence in Playgroup.

A panel of judges comprising representatives from Playgroup Victoria’s board, executive management and ambassador program will judge the awards.

All finalists will be invited to the Playgroup Awards gala presentation at the Arts Centre Melbourne on Thursday, 14 November. Prizes for award winners will include grants for professional development.

Nominations close on Friday, 13 September. Nominations can be made online through the Playgroup website or by calling 1800 171 822 to receive a copy of the nomination form.
