The Volunteer of the Year award is aimed to acknowledge the less visible, unsung heroes in our Museum who have, through their creativity, initiative, personal time or attainments, made a positive contribution to the National Railway Museum.

Nominations for this award must be in writing describing the volunteer’s work which paints a picture of the nominee’s contribution to the museum.

  • Describes the depth of the nominee’s contribution, that is, how they have made a lasting impact on the museum with information on the significance of these achievements.

Nominations close by 30 September of each year. Nominations can be made by any member of the National Railway Museum in writing. Nominations will be considered by the Museum’s Awards committee.

The award will be $100.00 cash accompanied by a framed certificate.
