PRIDE OF AUSTRALIA MEDAL
YOUR CHANCE TO HIGHLIGHT THOSE UNSUNG HEROES FROM YOUR COMMUNITY
NOMINATE SOMEONE TODAY
CHANNEL 10 news anchor Sandra Sully wouldn’t miss it for the world.
Now in their 11th year, the Pride of Australia Medal awards are now open for nominations.
And Ms Sully, who in recent years has been master of ceremonies at the Pride of Australia presentations and a judge, is keen to be involved again.
“It is one of my favourite events of the year. I don’t think I could miss it. It is a wonderful program,’’ she says.
Nominations in 10 categories continue until Sunday, July 19.
Pride of Australia is a community initiative of News Corp Australia that aims to focus on Australians who do extraordinary things.
They are our family, friends and community members who inspire us through their selfless actions.
Often their stories — which inevitably swell hearts and bring tears to the eye — would otherwise remain untold.
That’s why it’s important for readers to nominate the unsung heroes of the community so they can be duly honoured and inspire others.
Past winners come from all sections of society.
They include people such as 17-year-old Coen Ashton who since receiving a lifesaving double lung transplant in 2012, has jetskied the 2000km length of the Murray River twice.
He is now a motivational speaker dedicated to inspiring young people to aim high, fight valiantly against challenges and become organ donors. “If sharing my story means I can help change just one person’s life, it’s worth it,” he said.
It is one of my favourite events of the year. I don’t think I could miss it. It is a wonderful program.
