Finalists for QBANK’s annual Everyday Heroes Awards have been announced with 17 individuals and one group nomination highlighted as Queensland’s humble heroes.
Finalists vary from police, ambulance and fire service members to health and regional council workers as well as members of the surf life saving and correctional services communities.
QBANK CEO Mike Currie said 2017 was a record year for nominations for the awards now in their fourth year.
“We’ve had a fantastic response to the 2017 QBANK Everyday Heroes Awards, with 135 nominations highlighting the bravery, courage and selflessness that embodies the Queensland spirit.
“Many people have used the awards as an opportunity to say thank you to those who have gone above and beyond,” Mr Currie said.
“This year’s finalists include charitable volunteer workers, individuals who assist children with disabilities, organ donors, fundraisers and police officers who have gone above and beyond their call of duty.
“It’s great to see the enthusiasm that Queenslanders have shown in nominating their local everyday heroes and the great work they do every day.”
Awards will be presented in six categories including: Achievement, Ownership, Dedication, Working Together, Excellence and the Young Everyday Heroes Award at a VIP luncheon on 20 October.
Winners receive prize money of $1000, with a further $1000 donated to a charity of the award recipient’s choice. The Young Everyday Heroes Award winner, for those aged 12-17 years of age, will receive a $500 bursary to assist with equipment costs for their Emergency Services training participation.
