Ku-ring-gai Council wants to recognise women who ‘make things happen’ in Ku-ring-gai and through their work advance the cause of women.
The awards are open to volunteers, those working with community groups or residents who are helping the Ku-ring-gai community by providing a service or other assistance.
Mayor Jennifer Anderson said the Council would present winners with their awards at a special morning tea to be held at Caley’s Pavilion function centre at the Ku-ring-gai Wildflower Garden on Friday 6 March.
“We’re particularly interested in women who go about their work without seeking recognition, and who are making a difference in our local community” the Mayor said.
“For example, nominees may be helping migrants to settle in Ku-ring-gai, visiting new mothers at home or assisting at sporting events for children with a disability.”
“The aim of these awards is to recognise unsung heroines, or ‘Gems of Ku-ring-gai’ as we like to call them.”
Applications are open until 2 March and nomination forms are on the website at www.kmc.nsw.gov.au/InternationalWomensDay Nominations can also be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or mailed to the Council at Locked Bag 1056 Pymble NSW 2073.
