Multicultural Honour Roll

Honouring significant and exemplary contribution by people of our multicultural society.

Multicultural Honour Roll

The Premier’s Multicultural Medals and Honour Roll pay tribute to the many outstanding people who have worked tirelessly behind the scenes to promote social cohesion and harmony in our state of NSW.

The Multicultural Honour Roll is a permanent public record of the exemplary contribution by people of our multicultural society. This posthumous recognition marks the legacy of those people who have made a lasting contribution to the community in New South Wales that extends beyond their passing.

Recipients are announced at the Premier’s Harmony Dinner – the event to launch Multicultural March.

If you know someone who has made an outstanding contribution to our society, you can nominate them for an award or to be part of the Honour Roll.
