Pilbara News - - News -

Pi­o­neer­ing part­ner­ships be­tween West Aus­tralian re­sources com­pa­nies and lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties will be recog­nised with a pres­ti­gious new in­dus­try prize.

Min­is­ter for Mines and Pe­tro­leum Bill Marmion said the Com­mu­nity Part­ner­ship Award would high­light pos­i­tive out­comes of part­ner­ships be­tween com­pa­nies and com­mu­ni­ties.

“There are many ex­cel­lent ex­am­ples of how, by work­ing along­side com­mu­ni­ties and en­gag­ing with peo­ple in a mean­ing­ful way, re­sources com­pa­nies are leav­ing con­struc­tive and last­ing le­ga­cies,” he said.

“Nom­i­na­tions could in­clude ed­u­ca­tional, arts, hous­ing or train­ing ven­tures, but the scope is al­most end­less.”

Any com­mu­nity group, per­son or com­pany op­er­at­ing within the re­sources in­dus­try is el­i­gi­ble to nom­i­nate a pro­ject for the Com­mu­nity Part­ner­ship Award.

Nom­i­na­tions for the award close on April 29, and win­ners will be an­nounced in Septem­ber or Oc­to­ber.
