P&C Federation Annual Volunteer Awards

P&C Federation NSW Annual Volunteer Awards return this year after a break during the COVID-19 restrictions. These awards recognise member, NSW P&C Associations and their volunteers who are contributing in outstanding ways to their school communities and in their support for public education.

In our centenary year, P&C Federation have also reviewed these awards and made changes based on feedback received from our members.  There is now the ability to celebrate and acknowledge a wider range of contributions with expanded award categories, which includes groups of people and individuals.

You now have the opportunity to nominate P&C Association members, volunteers or even your own P&C Association.
