Heathcote residents have the opportunity to highlight brilliant women in our community, with nominations now open for the 2019 NSW Women of the Year Awards, which will be celebrating its eight year.

The Awards recognise women who have demonstrated excellence in business and society or made outstanding contributions, both personally and professionally, particularly those who have excelled despite adversity.

So many Heathcote women pour their heart and soul into their careers, families and volunteer work, strengthening and enriching our community.

I urge all Heathcote residents to submit a nomination and let the women in their lives know how much they are valued and appreciated.

The 2019 NSW Women of the Year Award categories include:
• NSW Premier’s Woman of the Year Award
• NSW Aboriginal Woman of the Year
• Community Hero
• Harvey Norman Young Woman of the Year
• Rex Airlines Regional Woman of the Year
• NSW Business Woman of the Year
• First State Super Lifetime Achievement

Nominations for 2019 close on Sunday, 11 November 2018. For more information or to nominate, please visit www.women.nsw.gov.au.

The winners will be announced at an Awards ceremony on Thursday March 7, the day before International Women’s Day.
