NOMINATE YOUR LOCAL ‘HERITAGE HEROES’ FOR A NSW STATE AWARD

14 September 2011

Do you know an individual or organisation who has contributed to the conservation, management or promotion of heritage in your local community?

Would you like to pay tribute to the men and women who have volunteered their time and personal commitment to ensuring that our State’s unique history and heritage is protected for future generations?

The NSW Government invites you to nominate your local ‘heritage hero’ as a recipient in the 2011 NSW Government Heritage Volunteer Awards.

Nationals Member for Lismore Thomas George said the annual awards formally recognise and honour individuals and groups who have made significant contributions to heritage.

The awards will be presented within 10 broad categories:

“Whether their contribution is through education, fundraising, historical research, interpretation, management, physical conservation, promotion or undertaking surveys and studies – this is the community’s chance to acknowledge the wonderful work undertaken by volunteers.

“We welcome nominations from community groups, individuals, heritage consultants and advisors, local councils, conservation and heritage organisations, and government agencies,” Mr George said.

The nomination form and list of criteria for the 2011 NSW Government Heritage Volunteer Awards program can be downloaded from the website: www.heritage.nsw.gov.au

Alternatively contact the Heritage Branch, Office of Environment and Heritage on 98738500.

Nominations close Friday 28 October 2011
