Nominations for the 2018 NSW Volunteer of the Year Awards close this Friday so get your nominations in quickly.
Volunteers make a significant contribution to their communities and the best ones deserve to be lauded for their efforts.

The award categories are:
- Young Volunteer of the Year
- Adult Volunteer of the Year
