Nominations are now open for the 20th Queensland Reconciliation Awards which recognise the outstanding achievements made by Queensland businesses, community organisations, educational institutions and partnerships making positive strides towards reconciliation.

 

Throughout the two decades of the Awards, approximately 100 inspiring organisations (including those in the early childhood education and care (ECEC) sector) and collaborations advancing reconciliation in Queensland have been celebrated, Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said.

 

“The Queensland Reconciliation Awards recognise organisations which go above and beyond in supporting reconciliation, leading the way towards a more inclusive and better Queensland,” the Premier said.

 

“From today, Queenslanders can nominate the projects, businesses, schools and organisations in their community that are contributing towards a fairer and more diverse Sunshine State.”

 

Each year the high-calibre nominations make the judging process “a tough job”, she continued. 

 

“We look forward to the many inspiring nominations we’re sure to receive for the 2022 Awards, which will help shape Queensland’s bright and harmonious future.”

 

There are five categories available for nomination in the 2022 Queensland Reconciliation Awards — business, community, education, health and wellbeing, and partnership. The health and wellbeing category was introduced for the first time last year to highlight the outstanding work accomplished across that industry.  

 

An overall Premier’s Reconciliation Award will also be presented to a nominated initiative, with a total of $30,000 in prize money on offer. Nominations close at 5pm, Friday 3 December 2021.

The 2022 Awards program is proudly supported by Bank of Queensland, The University of Queensland, James Cook University, Santos and QUT.
