NSW Government State Representative Award nomination guidelines

Criteria and eligibility

Nominations for the NSW Government State Representative Award must satisfy the following criteria:

  1. Nominees of any age, who have represented NSW in a competitive field (either nationally or
    internationally), may be nominated for the award.
  2. Nominations must be endorsed by the nominee’s local NSW State Member of Parliament.

Nomination process

  1. 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.

  2. Nominations should be submitted to the nominee’s local NSW State Member of Parliament for endorsement, after the competition has taken place.

  3. 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
    Protocol and Community Engagement
    GPO Box 5341, Sydney NSW 2001

    Fax: (02) 9228 5739
    Email: [email protected]

  4. Where possible, completed nominations will be processed within four weeks of PSE receiving the nomination form.

    PSE 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.

The NSW Government State Representative Award recognises people who have represented the State of NSW in a competitive field (eg. sport, music, the arts or academic) either nationally or internationally.

Nominees can be of any age.

Nominations must be submitted within two years 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.
