Victorian Regional Achievement & Community Awards

Please take a moment to read some inspiring words from our previous winners 

2012 Parks Victoria Environment and Sustainability Award winner - DemoDAIRY Co-operative Ltd

Louise Sheba 

'Being involved in the Awards is made very easy due to support from the Award organisers. In writing the application it feels good to get a sense of all the achievements the organisation has managed and what this has meant to the community.

The awards dinner and presentations are very enjoyable, relaxing and yet highly professional. It is exciting and entertaining.

The award gave us an opportunity to show sponsors they are supporting a successful organisation. It also raised the morale of staff and Board members to be part of an organisation whose achievements have been recognised."
