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.
