Regional achiever awards now taking nominations

Community members in the Mildura electorate who know a local high achiever are encouraged to submit a nomination as part of the Victorian Regional Achievement and Community Awards. 

Member for Mildura, Peter Crisp, said there were many people in the electorate who were making a huge contribution to the community through sporting clubs, environment and leadership programs, creating change in aged care and excelling in small business.

“These awards encourage, acknowledge and reward the valuable contribution individuals, businesses, groups and organisations are making throughout the electorate,” Mr Crisp said. 

“The awards highlight the valuable contribution people make towards building a stronger and better local community and there are many wonderful initiatives that deserve to be honoured with a nomination.” 

Mr Crisp said nominations were being sought in the following categories: 

  • Regional Achiever Award
  • Community Group of the Year Award
  • Senior Achievement Award
  • Environmental Sustainability Award
  • Business Achievement Award
  • Customer Service Award
  • Excellence in Aged Care Award
  • Leadership and Innovation Award
  • Community Service in Aged Care Award 

Mr Crisp said the awards provided the perfect opportunity to recognise leaders and innovators across a diverse range of sectors that make their communities better places. 

“There can never be enough encouragement and support for those working in regional and rural areas and awards such as these provide an opportunity for us to say thank you to those who work tirelessly in developing our region to make it a better place to live,” Mr Crisp said.

“We have many individuals, groups, programs and businesses worthy of nomination in the Mildura electorate and I encourage the community to make a nomination.” 

Nominations close on Wednesday 20 July 2016 with judging taking place on 31 August 2016. More information is available at
