Nominate Everyday Heroes for QBANK Awards

QBANK Everyday Heroes Awards
Last year's QBANK Everyday Heroes Award winners came from across the state and included police officers, paramedics, nurses, corrections volunteers and mental health advocates.

Bundaberg residents are being encouraged to nominate local front line workers and volunteers for this year's QBANK Everyday Heroes Awards.

Nominations are open until 31 August, with everyone welcome to put forward the names of individuals or teams who go above and beyond to protect and serve their Queensland communities.

QBANK Chief Executive Officer Byron Fuller said the awards celebrated the exceptional achievements of people within Queensland Police, Fire, Ambulance, Health, Corrections, Education and the Public Service including volunteers across these sectors.

“For the last 10 years, we have put more than 54 frontline workers, dedicated volunteers and young people in the spotlight for going above and beyond the call of duty to support and uplift their communities,” Mr Fuller said.

“We have heard hundreds of incredible stories of triumph, tragedy and accounts from people who wish to recognise the everyday heroes going out of their way to improve the lives of others, while in or out of uniform.

“This year, we are calling for more Queenslanders, from the top end to the south-east, to nominate individuals or teams across a range of sectors so we can say ‘thank you’ for their outstanding contributions.”

Aligned with QBANK’s values, the six award categories recognise Achievement, Ownership, Dedication, Working Together, Excellence and the Young Everyday Hero Award.

Winners will be selected by a panel of highly respected judges and will receive $2000 deposited into a QBANK account and a further $2000 donated to a charity of their choice.

“At QBANK, we are celebrating our 60th year of supporting those who serve Queensland, and the awards are a great opportunity to reward the efforts of our member communities,” Mr Fuller said.

“I encourage businesses, teams and individuals to nominate those who they believe deserve recognition.”

Finalists will be announced in September and winners will be recognised at the annual awards dinner in Brisbane in October.
