DO you know a Nambucca Valley woman worthy of recognition?

Nominations have opened for the 2022 NSW Women of the Year Awards.

Minister for Women Bronnie Taylor said the annual awards play an important role in recognising inspirational women from diverse backgrounds in NSW.

“These awards are all about celebrating women who are standing up and standing out in their communities and setting a wonderful example for everyone around them,” Mrs Taylor said.

There are so many women from all walks of life who are spearheading positive change and inspiring others to do the same right across the state.

Categories for the 2022 Awards include the Women of Excellence, Aboriginal Woman of the Year, Aware Super NSW Community Hero of the Year, Young Woman of the Year and Regional Woman of the Year.

The One to Watch Award, which recognises girls aged seven to 17 who supported others through acts of courage, strength, determination or kindness is in its second year.

Mrs Taylor said, “The One to Watch is our way of giving a huge shout out to rising stars who are showing strength and resilience, shining the way for others.”

There are many inspiring and resilient women in the Nambucca Valley, including the regional women who displayed incredible intelligence, commitment, skill, compassion and determination during our recent bushfires and floods, and continue to deliver support and endurance to their community during Covid lockdown.

News Of The Area encourages all women to believe in themselves and their capacity to contribute.

Nominations close on Friday 17 September and can be submitted at
