NOMINATIONS OPEN FOR PREMIER’S MULTICULTURAL MEDALS AND HONOUR ROLL
Nominations are now open for the Premier’s Multicultural Medals and Honour Roll, which recognises the significant contributions and achievements to multiculturalism by outstanding community members.
Member for Tamworth Kevin Anderson said the Tamworth electorate was the proud home to people from several different nationalities thanks to the hard work and dedication of local advocates and support groups.
“From Tamworth, to Gunnedah, to Barraba, to Quirindi, our region is home to people from a wide range of cultures, backgrounds and beliefs who all contribute to make our region a great place to live, work, learn and play,” Mr Anderson said.
“Recent events like Fiesta La Peel remind us of how important our multicultural community is and there are people, groups and organisations that deserve our thanks for the important roll they play in welcoming people from across the world into our communities.
“We can never repay them for the contributions they have made, but I know recognising their efforts as part of the Premier’s Multicultural Medals and Honour Roll is a fantastic way to thank them for their efforts.”
There are 12 categories for the awards, including business, local government, not-for-profit and arts and culture.
A new award will recognise the achievements of an outstanding and innovative language teacher who instils knowledge and a lifelong love of language and culture in students.
Nominations close on Friday 18 November, with the medal winners and honour roll inductees announced at the annual Premier’s Harmony Dinner in 2023.
