Still Time To Nominate For Multicultural Community Awards

Nominations are still open for the Premier’s Multicultural Community Medals to people in Baulkham Hills who have given exemplary service to the multicultural community in NSW.

Member for Baulkham Hills David Elliott said that as many as six people will receive the honour at the Premier’s Harmony Dinner in Sydney on 10 April – one of the highlights of the NSW Government’s inaugural Multicultural March.

“The medals not only honour the work of individuals who have contributed to community services, cultural exchange, harmony and economic activity, but recognise the achievements of all migrants in Baulkham Hills,” Mr Elliott said.

Nominations are also open for people to join the state’s Multicultural Honour Roll, a posthumous permanent record dedicated to those who made a lasting contribution to the NSW community that extends beyond their life.

Honour Roll inductees will also be announced at the Premier’s Harmony Dinner.

People with an active involvement in community activities can also nominate for the Premier’s Multicultural Awards in six categories – Youth; Lifetime Community Service; Arts and Culture; Regional Communities; Community or Interfaith Harmony and; Economic Participation.

These awards will be presented at a function at NSW Parliament House.

“I encourage all people who are dedicated to developing unity and harmony in our multicultural communities to nominate for one of these awards,” Mr Elliott said.     

 Nominations for the Premier’s Multicultural Community Medals, the Premier’s Multicultural Awards and the Multicultural Honour Roll all close at 5pm on 8 March.
