If you know a true local champion who should be recognised for their outstanding work in the community, then I want you to nominate them for the 2019 Queensland Greats Awards.
This significant Awards program recognises exceptional individuals and institutions for their contribution to the history and future of our great State.
If there is an individual or institution in community who has demonstrated a long-term commitment to Queensland, we want to see their name up in lights.in the list of extraordinary Queenslanders and Queensland institutions from across the State who have already been recognised as Queensland Greats.
Nominations are encouraged across one or more of the three categories – individual, institution and posthumous – and can be made via the nomination form available online.
The 2019 Queensland Greats will be announced at a ceremony on Queensland Day, 6 June 2019.
