Sports stars in the Midwest and Gascoyne are being sought — for nominations for a major award.

A search is on for 2020 Western Australian of the Year Awards.

The awards celebrate inspirational role models in the Aboriginal community; excellence in business leadership, social entrepreneurship and innovation; making a positive difference to the vibrancy of the State through arts and culture; positive social, scientific and economic impact; achievement in sport; and improving the lives of Western Australians and the community as a whole.

Celebrate WA chair Michael Anghie said he eagerly anticipated the 2020 high achievers who would set the tone for the next decade of exceptional Western Australians.

“As a State we are very modest about our achievements, but the truth is there are Western Australians doing incredible work in a variety of fields,” he said.

“The awards are our chance to give these people the recognition they deserve, and to show the rest of Australia and the world about the calibre of talent in WA.

“If you know someone who truly excels in their field, I ask you to nominate them for an award.”

Nominate friends, family or colleagues, or self-nominate for the awards online at www.waday.com.
