All Auskick Centres, Schools, Community Clubs and Leagues were invited to nominate an outstanding volunteer as part of the Toyota AFL National Volunteer Awards.

These volunteers may have contributed to the completion of a major or significant project throughout the year, gone above and beyond throughout COVID affected season or they may be someone who has contributed to a number of roles over a long period.

National Winners will be announced in Mid-September.
