Nominations for the 2024 NSW Woman of the Year awards are now open, and the community are invited to put forward the name of local woman who inspires, overcomes, and is a pillar of our community.

Member for Tamworth Kevin Anderson said the region was blessed with amazing women who always feature in the NSW Woman of the Year awards, and now was the time to shine a light on more amazing rural women.

“Rural women have always played an incredibly important role in regional communities and it’s great that every year we have an opportunity to recognise their contributions to our community,” Mr Anderson said.

“Throughout our history, women have ensured the success of regional communities, whether that’s through organisations like the CWA, or through thew incredibly important role women have always played in agriculture.

“Women from our community have always featured heavily in the NSW Woman of the Year awards, and I hope to see the same again at next year’s ceremony in March.”

The 2024 NSW Woman of the Year Awards will be held during NSW Women’s Week 2024 (4-10 March) in Sydney and the community can nominate women across four categories:

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

Nominations are open now and close on at 11:59pm on Sunday 8 October. For more information, please visit the NSW Government website.

“I look forward to seeing the contribution of local women highlighted at the next NSW Women of the Year awards and wish all our local nominees and nominators the best of luck.”
