In March 2022 Devonport City Council will once again recognise local women with its popular ‘Diamonds of Devonport’ awards event.
Held as part of Council’s International Women’s Day celebrations, the awards are a chance to honour exceptional women who continue to go above and beyond for the local community.
Nominations are now open, and in 2022 the intention is to recognise women who have enhanced the Devonport community by contributing over a significant period of time.
Devonport Mayor, Councillor Annette Rockliff, said since its inception in 2012, Diamonds of Devonport has recognised the efforts of over 260 amazing women who work or live within our community.
“We all know someone who is making a difference in our community; someone who is continually volunteering their time to help others and they usually do this without a fuss. These are the women that we want to honour, and we encourage the public to please nominate,” Cr Rockliff said.
Nominating is easy via an online form, available on the Council Website.
Nominations will be accepted for the 2022 awards in the following categories:
- Personal Achievement
- Business Achievement
- Community Achievement
- Young Achiever (under 30 years)
Nominees must live or work in the Devonport Local Government area and have significantly contributed over a period, in a way that enhances the Devonport community, for example:
- a long-term volunteer of a community or sporting organisation; or a community provider organisation;
- an employee of an organisation who has contributed over and above their day-to-day role; or
- a business woman/self-employed woman who has established a business in Devonport.
Nominations will close Monday, 7 February 2022.
