2021 Pilbara Community Services Excellence Awards

Posted: February 24th, 2021

Nominations are now open for the 2021 Pilbara Community Services Excellence Awards (and close on Friday, 2 April 2021 at 5pm).

YMAC is proud to be, once again, sponsoring one of the award categories this year: “Community Spirit (Volunteer)”.

Other individual categories include “Young Champion of the Year” and “Community Hero of the Year”; while organisations (small and medium/large) can be nominated for their “Impact”, “Innovation”, and “Partnerships”.

Winners will be announced at a special Gala Dinner, to be held at the Red Earth Arts Precinct in Karratha on Saturday, 19 June 2021.

The awards this year will celebrate the resilience, creativity, collaboration and leadership of both individuals and organisations working in the community services sector across the Pilbara. Over the past year, the sector has faced many challenges and has had to respond with courage, spirit, innovation and determination to ensure the continuation of essential services to Pilbara communities and families.  These awards will celebrate community heroes – organisations and individuals, leaders, youth and volunteers – who have gone above and beyond to make a difference to Pilbara communities.

Nominating for these awards provides a fantastic opportunity for Pilbara individuals and organisations to be recognised and celebrated for their dedication, passion and achievements.  It also provides an opportunity to showcase and promote your organisation and services to the wider Pilbara community.
