Previous win­ners in­clude Janet Holmes a Court for arts and cul­ture, Gail Al­li­son JP for Abo­rig­i­nal af­fairs and Ron Alexan­der for sport.

The North West has also had its share of win­ners, such as Kar­ratha’s Ryan Mor­rich who won the youth award in 2017, the Pil­bara’s James Fitz­patrick who won the Pro­fes­sions Award in 2017 and the Pil­bara’s Dr John van Bock­xmeer who won the com­mu­nity award in 2016.

Mem­bers of the pub­lic can nom­i­nate an in­di­vid­ual, or in­ter­ested ap­pli­cants can self-nom­i­nate through www.wa­day.com un­til Fe­bru­ary 15.
