The Premier’s Multicultural Medals and Honour Roll pay tribute to the many outstanding people who have worked tirelessly behind the scenes to promote social cohesion and harmony in NSW.
The Multicultural Honour Roll is a permanent public record of the exemplary contribution by people of our multicultural society. This posthumous recognition marks the legacy of those people who have made a lasting contribution to the community in New South Wales that extends beyond their passing.
“There are so many inspiring individuals and organisations doing incredible work in our community, striving to maintain harmony and peace in NSW during what has been a difficult year,” Mr Lee said.
“This program acknowledges these everyday multicultural heroes and champions, particularly those who have actively helped us in our messaging to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and supported the most vulnerable in our community.”
The medals honour the achievements of community members working in many fields including youth, business, arts and culture as well as regional communities.
“We have expanded the program this year to recognise even more individuals and organisations making a difference to our community,” Mr Lee said.
Nominations for the Multicultural Honour Roll end Friday, 22 January. Recipients are announced in March.
