Tasmanian Community Achievement Awards

Please find below some inspiring words from our previous winners 

2012 Heather & Christopher Chong Outstanding Achiever Award winners Ronnie & Maggie Burns

“The Community Award means a great deal to us because it represents the enormous work undertaken by our treasured volunteers, donors and community support organizations. We were so proud to receive this recognition because we are aware that it makes a difference to the value and support we can give to our visiting families. This acknowledgment allows Appin Hall to continue to provide respite for young people, giving them the opportunity to develop and grow into independent and contributing members of our society. Our community support takes us one step closer to making a difference in their lives. Because of the generosity of the Heather & Christopher Chong Award and their relevant sponsors, the $1,000 donation to Appin Hall represents a Gift of hope - and something that precious, is beyond value” 

2012 MAIB Disability Achievement Award winner Cathy Bantick

"I was thrilled to be submitted for the Community Achievement Awards in 2012 and couldn’t believe it when I was announced as the winner I couldn’t get off my seat for until it sank in! These awards are fantastic for recognising achievements and have helped me further develop my education within Riding for the Disabled Association which is my passion. I can’t thank the sponsors enough and the staff for all their work in the organising of the Awards dinner which was fantastic."

2012 Angove Family Winemakers Primary Industries and Agriculture Award winner Joan Field

"I was very honoured to be the winner of the Angove Family Winemakers Primary Industries & Agriculture Award for 2012. Part of the Community Achievement Awards. It is very humbling to be nominated by your peers for something that you have no idea you are doing anything out of the ordinary. Many thanks for the recognition."

2012 Ricoh Business Centre Hobart Environment and Sustainability Award winner  The Ugly Duck Out

Robyn Klobusiak, Owner 

"To participate in the Community Achievement Awards 2012 was such a positive experience. To be nominated and encouraged by staff was truly inspiring.

Producing the submission gives you the opportunity to reflect on ambitions and progress. It gives you the chance to acknowledge and continue on a path well chosen or to recreate alternate objectives. My team are still thrilled from attending the Gala Presentation Evening and the memory of the Ricoh Business Centre Hobart – Environment and Sustainability Award being announced, “the winner is here in bold – The Ugly Duck Out”
