NSW Government State Representative Award nomination guidelines
The NSW Government State Representative Award recognises people who have represented the State of NSW in a competitive field.
Nominees of any age, who have represented NSW in a competitive field (eg. sport, music, the arts or academic), either nationally or internationally, may be nominated for the Award.
Nominations must be submitted within 2 years of the staging of the competition in which the nominee represented NSW.
The Award is an official certificate bearing the NSW State Coat of Arms and the Premier’s signature.
Only nominations endorsed by the nominee’s local NSW State Member of Parliament will be considered.
Criteria and eligibility
Nominations for the NSW Government State Representative Award must satisfy the following criteria:
- Nominees of any age, who have represented NSW in a competitive field (either nationally or
internationally), may be nominated for the award.
- Nominations must be endorsed by the nominee’s local NSW State Member of Parliament.
The nomination form must be signed by a referee (eg. coach or instructor) who is an official representative of the NSW state organisation for which the nominee has been selected to represent NSW.
The referee must confirm that the nominee’s details are correct and the nominee is eligible for the award in accordance with the above criteria.
Referees may indicate on the nomination form if they would like to be involved in the distribution of the award certificates.
However, the method of distribution remains at the discretion of the Member of Parliament endorsing the nomination.
Nominations should be submitted to the nominee’s local NSW State Member of Parliament for endorsement, after the competition has taken place.
Once endorsed by a NSW State Member of Parliament, completed nominations must be submitted on a current nomination form to:
NSW Department of Premier and Cabinet
Premier’s Protocol Unit
Email: [email protected]
Post: GPO Box 5341, Sydney NSW 2001
Where possible, completed nominations will be processed within six weeks of the Department receiving the nomination form.
The Department will then forward the award to the local NSW State Member of Parliament who endorsed the application for counter-signing and distribution to the recipient.
