Ku-ring-gai International Women’s Day Awards now open

Recognising women who ‘make things happen’

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 rhall@kmc.nsw.gov.au or mailed to the Council at Locked Bag 1056 Pymble NSW 2073.
