The ‘Spirit of ANZAC’ Award Categories are:

  • The Spirit of Anzac Award recognises a club that has made an outstanding contribution throughout the year to its members and the local community which epitomises the sacrifices of those who served in the defence of the nation and in the traditions of the ANZACs – courage, endurance, initiative, discipline, and mateship – values on which our RSL and services clubs were founded.
  • The Outstanding Community Member Award recognizes a community ‘volunteer’, including a Director, Patron, Sub-Branch Committee Member, Staff Member or Club Member, who has demonstrated outstanding loyalty and service towards their club and/or the local community.
  • The Spirit of Kokoda Award recognises a former trekker who has used their Kokoda Youth Leadership Challenge experience to most advance their life goals and taken significant steps towards those aspirations since completing the trek.
    Please note: Each Award nomination is assessed on ALL criteria listed for that category. Please address every criteria in your nomination.
