This award will go to a group of volunteers that work in a Learn Local provider that is currently registered with the ACFE Board. The award will go to a group of up to 10 people who have worked together on a common project, demonstrating that effective or shared effort can achieve greater outcomes.
The team must have had some involvement with at least one ACFE Board-funded program or project that was delivered at the Learn Local provider between July 2018 and June 2019. There can be volunteers from other organisations on the team but at least two of the members must be from the Learn Local provider.
The winner of this award category will also be put forward by the ACFE Board for consideration as part of the 2019 Victorian Premier’s Volunteer Champions Awards — Teamwork category.
The winning team of this award receives a trophy and $5,000. The two finalist teams for this award each receive a framed certificate and $1,000.
