The Victorian Multicultural Awards for Excellence are currently open and taking nominations.

Proudly coordinated by the Victorian Multicultural Commission on behalf of the Victorian Government, the annual awards honour the outstanding achievements of Victorians who strengthen multiculturalism in our great state, recognising people, groups and organisations that foster cross-cultural understanding, build social cohesion and support people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds to participate in all aspects of life.

Now in its 19th year, the awards feature 15 categories that recognise the many ways Victorians are supporting one another to strengthen multiculturalism. This year the awards include four education sub-categories recognising early childhood services, schools, vocational education and training settings and not-for-profit organisations.

Nominations are now open until 18 October 2020. To find out more or nominate for an award please go to https://www.multiculturalcommission.vic.gov.au/multicultural-awards-for-excellence.
