Residents of Wollondilly Electorate (Wollondilly and the Southern Highlands) are encouraged to celebrate the positive role seniors play in the community by nominating them for the 2024 NSW Seniors Festival Local Achievement Awards.
This festival and the awards celebrate the contributions and achievements of our seniors. If you know a senior who helps make our community diverse, inspiring and active, then I encourage you to nominate them for acknowledgement of their contribution.
This annual festival is about celebrating the positive impact of older people in our families and society.
Nominations are now open for the awards program, one of many initiatives the NSW Government promotes to support the state’s seniors living happy, healthy, and active lives.
Winners of the Local Achievement Awards will be announced during the NSW Seniors Festival which runs from 11 – 24 March.
The awards program is part of an exciting schedule of events across the state.
By highlighting seniors’ continued efforts in helping themselves thrive, we are continuing to challenge ageism and empower seniors to overcome social stigmas.
Nomination forms can be completed online, completed using this online form or picked up at Judy’s electorate office in Tahmoor. You can also call the office to have a form emailed.
Applications close at 5.00pm on Thursday 29th February 2024.
