Nominate for regional awards
There is still one month left to nominate for the WA Regional Achievement and Community Awards and recognise the work of those most committed to improving the Pilbara and other country communities in the State.
The awards have been held annually since 2002 and are designed to acknowledge and reward the often behind-the-scenes contributions made by people, communities and businesses in regional parts of WA.
Organisers are calling for nominations across 11 awards categories including community service, leadership and innovation, business achievement, and development of northern regional WA.
Each category winner will receive a $2000 prize and a trophy.
Two Pilbara organisations were named WARACA winners in 2016, with the Earbus Foundation of WA being awarded community group of the year and the Onslow Chamber of Commerce and Industry taking home the gong for development of northern regional WA.
Nominations for the 2017 awards close on Wednesday, July 26.
