Nominations now open for 2017 Governorís Multicultural Awards

 

October 2017

Multicultural Affairs Minister Zoe Bettison is encouraging South Australians are encouraged to nominate worthy individuals and organisations for the awards, which recognise and celebrate outstanding contributions to cultural diversity.

Award categories include arts and culture, community sector, outstanding individual achievement, volunteer and youth.

Last year, a total of 34 finalists and 17 winners were recognised, from more than 70 nominations, for their achievements and contributions to multiculturalism in South Australia.

South Australians come from about 200 countries, speak more than 200 languages (including Aboriginal languages) and represent about 100 religions.

Migrants from non-English speaking backgrounds make up nearly 13 percent of South Australiaís population. When the children of migrants are added, this figure rises to nearly 25 percent.

Nominations are open until 5pm Friday 6 October 2017 and can be made online at www.multicultural.sa.gov.au/GMA.

Winners will be announced in March 2018 at a ceremony at Government House.

"South Australia is fortunate to have a strong and well-established multicultural community", Multicultural Affairs Minister Zoe Bettison said.

"Given our proud history of cultural diversity, I am certain many of us know someone who is worthy of recognition with a Governorís Multicultural Award".

Ms Bettison said the awards recognise the incredible efforts of many individuals and organisations that contribute so much to our multicultural community.

"If you know an individual, business or community group making an outstanding contribution to the cultural diversity of our community, I urge you to nominate them for one of these prestigious award", the Minister concluded.
