You know who we’re talking about

They’re the humble, generous and caring members of the ACT who have helped individuals, organisations or the community with an act of awesomeness!

It might be your cousin who volunteers to coach the local footy team (Leadership), a friend who mows their elderly neighbours yard every week without being asked (Kindness), a workmate who saved a dog from drowning in Lake Burley Griffin (Bravery), or your Mum who has volunteered her time at the local hospital for the past 20 years (Generosity).

Congratulations to the winners!

Here they are! This group of amazing people who have each performed a great Act for ACT are too awesome to keep close to our chest. Thank you for helping us find our fantastic Act for ACT winners.

We had 5 awards up for grabs, with a total prize pool of $50,000. $25,000 went to our winners and $25,000 was donated to the Canberra Hospital Foundation by GIO in their names. What a great way to shine a light on people who have performed a great act of Leadership, Kindness, Generosity or Bravery, and say thank you for making a real difference to our territory.
