Veterans awards open

BUSINESSES are encouraged to nominate for the inaugural Prime Minister’s Veterans’ Employment Awards recognising veterans and their employers.

Forrest MHR Nola Marino said the awards celebrated businesses that employed veterans and veterans who made a significant contribution to their workplace.

“There are many organisations in the South West that have hired a veteran and are reaping the benefits,” she said.

“If you know a local business that employs veterans or a former Australian Defence Force member who is doing outstanding work then please encourage them to nominate for an award.”

Winners will be announced at an award ceremony in March 2018 in Canberra, attended by the Prime Minister.
