Guests at NSW Premier's Harmony Dinner

Open Nominations for Community Medals and Honour Roll

The NSW community is being encouraged to nominate a person or organisation who worked hard to promote our common values and social harmony during 2020.

Acting Minister for Multiculturalism Geoff Lee has opened nominations for the 2021 Premier’s Multicultural Community Medals and the Multicultural Honour Roll.

“There are so many inspiring individuals and organisations doing incredible work in our community, striving to maintain harmony and peace in NSW during what has been a difficult year,” Mr Lee said.

“This program acknowledges these everyday multicultural heroes and champions, particularly those who have actively helped us in our messaging to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and supported the most vulnerable in our community.”

The medals honour the achievements of community members working in many fields including youth, business, arts and culture as well as regional communities.

“We have expanded the program this year to recognise even more individuals and organisations making a difference to our community,” Mr Lee said.

“It’s been a tough year but as we look forward to 2021, I encourage all those who know incredible change-makers leading significant projects, programs and events to nominate them for a Multicultural Community Medal.”

The Premier’s Multicultural Community Medal winners will be announced and presented in March 2021 at the Harmony Dinner.

The Premier will also posthumously recognise the legacy of people who have made lasting contributions to NSW through the Multicultural Honour Roll.


Nominations are open until 5pm on Friday 22 January 2021.
