Do you know a rural woman volunteer within your local government area you would like to acknowledge for their contribution to the community?
NSW Department of Primary Industries’ (DPI) Rural Women’s Network program is seeking your help to uncover female volunteers within NSW rural communities before 30 July 2018.
These worthy women in your electorate will be included in the NSW Department of Primary Industries Hidden Treasures Honour Roll.
Women are so often the backbone of families and communities and without their support many groups including charities, emergency services, the arts, environment, social justice, education and sporting organisations would struggle to survive.
We initiated the Hidden Treasures project to promote and archive the work of these remarkable women. It is not an award program but a public tribute to the vast number of rural women who give their time and energy to help others across their community.
We hope that you will again support this initiative by calling for nominations from within your local government area as recognition of the valuable work woman volunteers do.
An example of previous Hidden Treasures can be found at 2017 Hidden Treasures Honour Roll.
The 2018 Hidden Treasures Honour Roll will be unveiled at the NSW Rural Women’s Gathering in Merimbula on 20 October 2018.
Nominations can be completed online at Hidden Treasures. All rural women nominated will be included in the Honour Roll.
For more information please see the attached media release or if you need help with your nomination call 02 6391 3706.
