NSW government wants you to nominate an unsung community hero

·

Nominations open today for the 2024 Premier’s Multicultural Community Medals, honouring the unsung community heroes who work in the field of multiculturalism in NSW.

Submissions are also open for the 2024 Multicultural Honour Roll, giving posthumous recognition for significant achievements by members of NSW’s vast and diverse society.

The awards program is one of the most prestigious in the State. Medal recipients and Honour Roll inductees are celebrated at a gala awards ceremony attended by hundreds of community members and cultural, faith and political leaders.

There are 12 categories for the awards, including business, local government, not-for-profit and a special category to recognise the achievements of an outstanding and innovative language teacher who instils knowledge and a lifelong love of language and culture in students.

NSW Premier Chris Minns said “these awards recognise not only the incredible leaders in New South Wales right now, but also those who have come before us, whose impact is still being felt decades later.”

“I’m proud to endorse the awards this year and I encourage everyone in NSW to nominate a friend, family member or colleague,” Mr Minns said.

NSW Minister for Multiculturalism Steve Kamper added that the Honour Roll “is an opportunity for us to thank their families for their work in uniting us in a common belief that everyone has something to contribute to our rich social fabric.”

Nominations close on Thursday, September 7. For further information on how to apply, please visit: multicultural.nsw.gov.au/the-premiers-multicultural-community-medals/
