Do you know someone who deserves recognition for their work in regional communities?

The Regional Achievement and Community Awards invites you to nominate an organisation, club, group, business or individual who you believe deserves an award for their work in regional and rural areas. Many people who contribute towards community development don’t expect recognition, but awards such as these create an opportunity to say ‘thanks’ to those who do.

There are nine categories for nomination, including:

– Rinehart Family Volunteering Award
– CSBP Environment Awary
– Curtin University Teaching Excellence Award
– Horizon Power Leadershop and Innovation Award
– Department of Indigineous Affairs Indigenous Service Award
– Prime Super Community Group of the Year
– LandCorp Sustainability Award
– Perth Airport Events and Tourism Award

Additionally, one of these nine category winners will also be named as the overall WA winner of the Department of Regional Development and Lands Regional Achievement Community Award.

Winners will each receive a $2000 Smart Access Account from the Commonwealth Bank.

Nominations close 21 August 2012, and winners will be announced at the awards presentation gala held at the Perth Convention Centre, on Friday 16th November 2012.

Entry forms are available at all Commonwealth Bank Branches, or can be downloaded from the Awards Australia website.
