Tips for Nomination - Award for Leadership in Languages and Cultures

The best nominations are those that tell a story and capture the characteristics of an extraordinary Australian making a difference.

So, don’t be daunted by the task of nominating your inspiring colleague or community champion, friend or family member. Just consider our tips for writing a stand-out nomination:


Open with the important information

Start with a clear and specific statement that outlines why your nominee is worthy of an Award for Leadership in Languages and Cultures. Ask yourself: What activities or actions has the nominee undertaken that stand out? What has the nominee accomplished that goes above and beyond? What special skills or talents have they employed? How have they showed their leadership skills? Why are you motivated to nominate this person?


Sample questions

  • Tell us about your nominee- why do you believe they should win the Award for Leadership in Languages and Culture
  • How have they contributed to their community and gone above and beyond in the work they do?
  • How have they displayed a commitment to advocacy for a Multicultural Australia?
  • How do they operate across cultures?
  • How have they displayed their leadership skills?


Share their story

Strengthen your nomination by painting a picture of the person. What motivates them to make a difference? What personal challenges have they overcome in their life? Why do they inspire others? How does this person make you feel?


Don’t just say it, prove it

Use real-world examples that demonstrate why your nominee is an inspiring role model. We want to know the stories of their life and the impact they have made.
