Nominations open for the 2024 Queensland Reconciliation Awards

Joseph Guenzler -

Businesses, community groups, schools, sporting clubs, and cultural organisations are invited to submit nominations for the 2024 Queensland Reconciliation Awards.

The Awards are accepting nominations in five categories: business, community, education, health and wellbeing, and partnership.

Additionally, an overall Premier's Reconciliation Award will be presented to a nominated initiative showcasing innovative strategies and outstanding outcomes in advancing reconciliation in Queensland.

The organisers say the awards promote reconciliation by recognising "key partnerships, employment initiatives, and contributions to enhance the health and wellbeing of Indigenous communities".

Minister Leeanne Enoch notes that reconciliation is "a shared responsibility", and said she gains inspiration from the nominations for the Queensland Reconciliation Awards each year.

"We all have a role to play in reconciliation and each year we are inspired by the diversity, impact and excellence of the nominations received for the Queensland Reconciliation Awards," she said.

"The Miles government continues to work towards reconciliation by working with First Nations communities to deliver and implement better policies which help to Close the Gap in life outcomes and delivering equality and opportunity."

"The awards provide us with an opportunity to celebrate our shared journey towards reconciliation highlighting initiatives and programs that are advancing reconciliation, strengthening relationships and improving outcomes for Queenslanders."

Since their establishment in 2003, the annual awards have acknowledged more than 100 initiatives and partnerships, contributing to a more inclusive Queensland.

Recipients of the 2024 Queensland Reconciliation Awards will be revealed at a ceremony held during National Reconciliation Week, from 27 May to 3 June 2024, sharing a total prize fund of $30,000.

"Advancing reconciliation in Queensland has gone from small steps to big strides since the awards started in 2003, and I know that this year's nominations will be exceptional examples of our amazing Queensland communities at work," Ms Enoch said.

"I look forward to hearing the stories of passion, dedication and demonstrations of reconciliation in action right across Queensland."
