The state-wide search for local contributors who are making a real difference in communities begins on Thursday 9 May, so if someone has impressed you with their community spirit, nominate them for a Queensland Community Achievement Award.

The Queensland Community Achievement awards first began in 2002 and recognise those that work tirelessly to improve their communities by promoting the social, economic and environmental prosperity.

Last years winner of the Ricoh Customer Service Award was Senior Information Officer at the Kuranda Visitor Information Centre, Catherine Harvey and she said that the award was all about recognising the volunteers and their passion.

“It is a challenge to work in an industry that expects a really high standard of customer service and their dedication was recognised and very much appreciated. There are many volunteer organisations around Australia – with many unsung heroes who really do deserve a bit of recognition, even though they don’t expect it. I encourage all community groups to enter in 2019 as it is really worth giving it a go,” she said.

Some of the categories that will be open for nominations include; Prime Super Agricultural Innovation Award, Prime Super Employer Excellence in Aged Care Award, Australia Pacific LNG Community Hero Award, Pullenvale Ward Outstanding Achievement Award, and Ricoh Australia Customer Service Award.
