Brigade volunteers, nominate a mate today as a QBANK Everyday Hero
Wednesday, 26 Jul 2017
Nominations are now open for the QBANK Everyday Heroes Awards aimed at recognising the work of everyday heroes in the Queensland community.
Any Rural Fire Volunteer can be nominated by a brigade member, colleagues, friends or family to say thanks for going above and beyond the call of duty and making Queensland a better place to live.
There are six awards categories:
- Working Together
- Young Everyday Hero Award
It only takes two minutes to nominate and shine a light on your everyday hero's contribution to the Queensland community. Nominations are open from Monday, 17 July and close on Friday, 1 September 2017 and can be made online.
Winners will be announced on Friday, 20 October and will receive $1,000 plus an additional $1,000 for a charity of their choice. The Young Everyday Hero Award winner will receive a $500 bursary to assist with their training and development costs.
All local, state and federal government employees and volunteers who live in Queensland are eligible for a 2017 QBANK Everyday Heroes Award. Anyone between the ages of 12 and 17 can be nominated for a QBANK Young Everyday Hero Award.
The QBANK Everyday Heroes Awards celebrates those Queenslanders who make our lives better by protecting and serving our community. The RFBAQ are proud to have been supporting this initiative since its launch in 2014.
