Nominations are now open for the 2021 NSW Women of the Year Awards and Parliamentary Secretary for the Centra Coast, Adam Crouch, is inviting entries.

Crouch said the awards help to share the stories of inspirational women across NSW.

“2020 has been a difficult year for everyone in NSW, and on the Central Coast we have been confronted with the triple whammy of bushfires, flooding and COVID-19,” he said.

“Our community is facing many challenges, but it is important to acknowledge and thank inspirational local women.

“In previous Women of the Year Awards women from the Central Coast like businesswoman Suzy Miller, nurse Steph Forster, philanthropist Yvonne Crestani, firefighter Tanya Deger, psychologist Nada Potter and founder of Free Trade Day Yvette Wilson have been recognized for their work.

“There are just four weeks to make a nomination for the 2021 NSW Women of the Year awards and I am calling on everyone to consider who they can nominate.”

Minister for Women, Bronnie Taylor, said two new categories of awards had been created, including the One to Watch category which recognises rising stars in NSW.

“This category is about celebrating a group of girls from seven to seventeen who are emerging as future leaders through their acts of kindness, strength and determination,” Taylor said.

The 2021 award categories are The Premier’s Award for Woman of the Year, NSW Woman of Excellence, NSW Community Hero, NSW Young Woman of the Year, NSW Regional Woman of the Year, NSW Aboriginal Woman of the Year, and NSW One to Watch Award.

Winners will be announced at a ceremony on March 10, 2021, at the International Convention Centre, Sydney.
