An annual initiative of The Department of Primary Industries’ Rural Women’s Network, Hidden Treasures recognises the outstanding efforts of women volunteers in NSW and promotes the valuable role of volunteering to the community.
This important tribute captures inspirational stories, documenting and celebrating the unpaid work of women who are ensuring the viability of so many important and crucial community groups and charities such as emergency services, the arts, environment, social justice, education and sport organisation, and so many others within rural and regional communities.
Nominating a rural woman for the Hidden Treasures Honour Roll is a great way to celebrate rural women from across NSW who give so much of their time to improving communities and neighbourhoods.
You can nominate a friend, family member, colleague, community worker – any rural woman who you believe makes your community a better place to live.
To nominate simply complete a Nomination Form and tell a short ‘story’ about why your nominee is worthy.
All rural women nominated will be included in the 2020 Honour Roll. ‘Rural’ is defined as anyone living outside the larger metropolitan centres of Sydney, Newcastle and Wollongong. Please check the Hidden Treasures Listing at www.dpi.nsw.gov.au/about-us/rural-support/rural-womens-network/hidden-treasures/hidden-treasures-honour-roll-nominees to ensure the person you wish to nominate has not been nominated previously.
For more information or help with your nomination call the Rural Women’s Network on 02 6391 3186 or email firstname.lastname@example.org Nominations close on 24th July 2020.
