The AMSA National Men’s Shed Awards give the Men’s Shed network an opportunity to recognise the outstanding work of Men’s Sheds around Australia.

Nominations fall into five (5) categories:

  • Unique fundraising activity – most sheds undertake fundraising activities (Bunnings BBQ’s, market stalls etc), what’s the most unique fundraising activity your shed has seen?
  • Unusual shed activity – Men’s Sheds are not just about wood work and metal work.
  • Best shed garden – does your shed have an impressive flower or produce garden?
  • Outstanding recycling/up-cycling activity – shedders are all about recycling, what does your shed do?
  • Shed of the year  – do you love the time spent at your shed enough to nominate it for the best shed in Australia?

Nomination guidelines:

  • Nominated Men’s Sheds must be a member of AMSA
  • One nomination form per nomination
  • Specific activities must have been undertaken in 2016/2017
