The awards, now in their fifth year, recognise Queensland’s frontline and public service workers, as well as youth aged 17 years and under, who have gone above and beyond to help their community.
QBANK CEO Mike Currie said the five adult category recipients, as well as the Young Everyday Hero Award recipients, had demonstrated the true qualities of an ‘everyday hero.’
“Our winners range from clinical nursing staff and paramedics through to fire fighters, Australian army veterans, Queensland Corrections staff and a group of Sunshine Coast-based Nippers,” Mr Currie said.
“While our category winners come from diverse backgrounds and public service organisations, they share one common thread – they demonstrate a selfless commitment to their communities.”
“We had an increased number of nominations in the QBANK Everyday Heroes Awards again this year, and I congratulate each and every one of the nominees in the 2018 awards on their amazing acts of kindness and dedication.”
The five category winners each receive $1,000 cash deposited into a QBANK account and $1,000 donated to their charity of choice. The Young Everyday Heroes Award winners will receive a $500 bursary towards their training and development.
A full list of finalists can be found on the website.

As these devastating fires continue to engulf our nation, our thoughts are with our emergency services, those helping evacuate and assist on the frontline, and the communities & families that are suffering during this unprecedented disaster.
