Nominations open for NSW Women of the Year Awards 2024


Nominations for the NSW Women of the Year Awards 2024 opened Thursday, August 31.

Minister for Women Jodie Harrison said the NSW Government is looking for the most empowering and inspiring women and girls in the state.

“These awards recognise the invaluable contribution to community, industry and society that women in NSW have made through their hard work, dedication and passion. The awards honour our inspirational women with the recognition they truly deserve,” Minister Harrison said.

“We want to continue to empower the next generation of young women to be limitless in delivering positive changes through fortitude in their fields of expertise. We can only achieve this by shining a light on the contributions and achievements of women in our communities.”

The annual awards will put the spotlight on women and girls whose determination, bravery, skill and passion should be celebrated and shared, inspiring others to achieve great things. They celebrate the role models who challenge inequality, innovate and inspire.

The 2024 award categories are:

  • Premier’s NSW Woman of Excellence
  • NSW Community Hero
  • NSW Young Woman of the Year
  • NSW Aboriginal Woman of the Year

Young Woman of the Year 2023 winner, Chanel Contos, said winning the award gave her the opportunity to spread her work across borders, working with state and federal governments in Australia and with teachers internationally.

“Almost all the work I do aims to amplify the voices of young women, so I felt privileged to be recognised in such a special way. Women and young girls often involve themselves in community action, social good and volunteering with little to no recognition or pay for this extra work. Young women are such a passionate group who deserve to have their voices amplified.” Ms Contos said.
