Rotary Club of Burnside Inc 2019 Awards

Ashleigh Coombs - Thursday, January 17, 2019

Nominations for the Rotary Club of Burnside’s Parks Awards featuring recognition for service in ‘Leadership in Conservation’ and ‘Volunteer of the Parks’ are now open, and will close on 28 March, 2019.

As they did in 2018, Rotary is pleased to continue with the award criteria as follows:

  • Volunteer of the Parks award - open to anyone who is going above and beyond as a volunteer looking after our natural resources whether on park or on other land, whether they be from a Friends of Parks Inc. member group or other environmental group
  • Leadership in Conservation award - this now includes employees from other departments and agencies, perhaps working on a DEW project, but not necessarily, and who fit the criteria of being a leader and role model to others, being innovative and thinking/working with a view to the future.

The Rotary Club of Burnside Inc. has also kindly agreed to provide the following monetary prizes to the winners:

  • Volunteer of the Parks - $500 towards a project of their choice, or some sort of professional development
  • Leadership in Conservation - $500 towards professional development e.g. training course, conference

Funds will be available until 30th June 2020 for the winners, who will need to inform Rotary when they find a suitable course, project etc.

The presentation this year will be a two course luncheon at the Hackney Hotel , on Sunday, 26 May , at 12.00 pm at $55 per person, (please see online invitation below).
