The search is on for Hidden Treasures. Communities have eight weeks to nominate female rural volunteers

Nominate a friend, family member, colleague, community worker – any rural woman who you believe makes your community a better place to live.

Hidden Treasures acknowledges the important volunteer roles women play within NSW rural communities. Nominating a rural woman is a great way to formally acknowledge the efforts of rural women and celebrate volunteering as an important community value.

Volunteer roles are diverse and may include fundraising, delivering meals to the elderly, fighting fires, driving patients, mentoring young people, creating community artworks or coordinating events.

To nominate a Hidden Treasures volunteer simply tell us a short ‘story’ about why your nominee is worthy. All rural women nominated will be included in the 2012 Honour Roll to be launched at the 2012 NSW Rural Women’s Gathering being held at Parkes from 12-14 October.

Nominate online OR download the Nomination Form.

For more information or if you need assistance with your nomination call the NSW Centre for Volunteering on 02 9261 3600 or email: rural.women@dpi.nsw.gov.au

Nominations close 20 August 2012.
