It’s time to shine a light on outstanding locals with nominations now open for the 2019 Australia Post One Netball Community Awards. In its sixth year, the awards celebrate our community champions in clubs and associations across the country who go above and beyond to ensure that everyone, of all backgrounds and abilities, are welcome in netball.
Australia Post General Manager Community & Philatelic, Andrea Pearman said the Australia Post One Netball Community Awards highlight a positive change underway across Australia that tells the stories of passionate quiet achievers who are creating more inclusive communities through netball.
“Past winners have demonstrated a commitment to creating welcoming environments for existing and new participants including people with disability, regional and remote communities, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, multicultural communities, and socio-economically disadvantaged communities.”
“With inspirational and empowering stories each year, we will again celebrate unsung heroes who are helping change our local communities through netball,” said Andrea.
Australian Diamonds and Melbourne Vixens player, and Australia Post One Netball Ambassador, Caitlin Thwaites, said that the awards were helping transform communities, with volunteers supporting activities and initiatives that break down barriers.
Each winner will receive prizes worth more than $1,000 including an Australia Post Gift Card for the winners’ club or association, a netball signed by the 2019 Australian Diamonds team, and a visit from an Australia Post One Netball Ambassador to the club or association.
Nominations are now open until Sunday, 30th June, with one winner from each State and Territory to be chosen and announced on Thursday, 15 August. To nominate for this year’s awards go to onenetball.org.au.
