Nominations sought for the 2013 Coral McLean Awards

Nominations have opened for the 2013 Coral McLean Awards which will form part of this year’s International Women’s Day celebrations in Chifley.

Federal Member for Chifley Ed Husic says the Coral McLean Award has become one of his personal highlights of the year – a chance to celebrate and recognise great local efforts by leading women in our community.

“In Chifley, we recognise the importance of International Women’s Day by keeping alive the memory of Coral McLean, known to many as the ‘Mother of Mt Druitt’ who worked tirelessly for our community,” Mr Husic said.

“Through this Award we honour women who help enrich the lives of others in our local community, following in Coral’s footsteps.”

Three categories will be awarded including the Coral McLean Award, Chifley Woman of the Year Award and Young Chifley Woman of the Year Award (18-28 years old).

Nominations close 5pm, Monday, 25 February 2013 with the winners to be announced at a presentation on Thursday, 7 March 2013.
