Noosa is home to some really incredible, selfless and inspirational people. Maybe you’d like to share what makes them special in the eyes of your club or organisation?

Celebrating its fourth year, the latest opportunity to honour our unsung heroes comes in the form of the 2019 Noosa Electorate Queensland Day Awards. It’s about nominating those who ‘go beyond’, for your club, school, sporting group or not-for-profit organisation. Or maybe it’s recognising those who gives their time, expertise and services to the Noosa electorate pro-bono?

Sandy Bolton MP, joined award partners Linda Oliver and Simone Flavelle from Bendigo Bank and Noosa News editor, Michele Sternberg to give us a look at the medallion to be presented to each of the eventual recipients.

“Queensland Day is an opportunity to celebrate our culture, heritage, people and unique identity. We also get to honour our inspiring Queensland role models who encourage us all to do better and be better. So many of our Noosa locals do this by working for the benefit of others and for our collective community,” Sandy shared.

Great response is expected again this year and nominations will be accepted until the Monday, May 20 deadline. Recipients can only be those who have not previously received this award and whose community work is within the Noosa electorate.

Every completed nomination recognised will see the recipient presented a personalised Noosa Electorate Queensland Day Award Medallion and a certificate of recognition at a Queensland Day Ceremony on Thursday, June 6 at The J.

Bendigo Bank’s Simone Flavelle said continuing the partnership of the awards is a great fit for the sponsors.

“Like our other award partners, our point of difference is our connection with our community. We’re proud of the fact that our Noosa branches work so closely with so many of these groups. Our branches exist so we can return profits right here, where we live. It’s great being part of this annual Queensland Day tradition and honouring our local treasures,” Simone said.
