NSW Grandparents Day


Nominations are now open for the NSW Grandparent of the Year Award.

Grandparents and older people give so much to our communities and families, from sharing their skills and wisdom, to volunteering their time and looking after grandchildren.

Celebrate everything a grandparent or older person does for you and your community and nominate them for the 2018 NSW Grandparent of the Year Award today.

The 2018 NSW Grandparent of the Year Award recipients will be announced at an award ceremony at NSW Parliament House in October, ahead of NSW Grandparents Day.

How do I submit a nomination?

All nominations must be submitted online via the 2018 NSW Grandparent of the Year nomination form on the SmartyGrants portal.

You’ll be asked to provide contact details and information about why your nominee should be recognised as the NSW Grandparent of the Year.

Nominations will be judged on contributions made to families and communities, and to intergenerational connections within the community. Please note that award finalists will be required to complete a police check.

Nominations close Friday 7 September 2018.
