RURAL ACHIEVEMENT AND COMMUNITY AWARDS - NOMINATE NOW!

9 July 2009

The Nationals Member for Lismore, Thomas George, has called for individuals and community groups to nominate for the NSW/ACT Regional Achievement & Community Awards, that encourage, acknowledge and reward valuable contributions and outstanding achievements in regional and rural areas

''The focus of the Regional Achievement and Community Awards is small to medium size businesses that are involved in promoting the community through events and tourism, individuals providing leadership and initiative and community groups enhancing the social, economic, commercial and environmental prosperity of their region,” Thomas George said.

“This is a great way to encourage and support local individuals and groups dedicated to enhancing our local community.

Thomas George said that nominations for these Awards close on 21 August and can be made in one of six categories:

Nomination forms are available from the Lismore Electorate Office at 55 Carrington Street LISMORE, by mail to PO Box 52 LISMORE 2480, phone 6621 3624, fax 6622 1403 or email lismore@parliament.nsw.gov.au

“The Awards will be presented during a ceremony in Bathurst on 31 October 2009 and all category winners will receive a hand crafted glass trophy and a share in a huge $30,000 Commonwealth Bank AwardSaver accounts or Television Air Time Prize Packages on Prime Television,” Thomas said.

“So if you know of someone, who is worthy of recognition, take the time to nominate them, it could be just the encouragement that they need,” Thomas George said.
