2024 Deakin Community Awards – Recipients

On Thursday 13 June we celebrated the 2024 Deakin Community Awards. More than 500 members of our community came together to recognise individuals and community groups who selflessly serve others.

We recognised 56 individuals and 13 community groups who were richly deserving of this recognition.

I also want to thank The Australian Children’s Choir and East City Sound Chorus for their wonderful performances and to Nicole Werner MP, for her outstanding efforts as MC.

Congratulations again to all of our award winners, and those who nominated and supported such a wonderful group of people for recognition this year.
