Jann Stuckey MP, Member for Currumbin, is calling on the Currumbin community to support individuals, community groups and businesses by nominating themselves or someone they know for a Regional Achievement and Community Award.

“I really encourage nominations for these awards that give our community a chance to acknowledge and pay tribute to those who make significant contributions to regional and rural areas across our state,” Ms Stuckey said.

“Here in Currumbin we have a large number of individuals and groups volunteering or putting in so much of their time and effort into our community.

“All too often the invaluable work of our community groups and individuals goes unnoticed and these awards are a perfect opportunity to recognise them.
 
“Applications are open for the following six categories:
• The Salvation Army Employment Plus – Business & Employment Award
• The Peabody – Environment and Landcare Award
• The Prime Super – Community of the Year Award
• The SunWater – Youth Leadership Award
• The Clark Rubber – Regional Service Award
• The Safeguard – Events and Tourism Award

“Nominations close Friday 17th August 2012. Judging will take place on Friday 5th September, with award recipients to be announced on Saturday 3rd November. 

“For more information and to access a nomination form visit www.awardsaustralia.com or call 1300 735 445.
