February 18, 2019

About the HART Awards

The HART Awards are a partnership between the Victorian Local Governance Association (VLGA), and Reconciliation Victoria, and supported by Bank Australia and Local Government Victoria. Now in their 6th year, these Awards recognise local Victorian initiatives and champions that make a real difference in their community by contributing to local reconciliation outcomes.

The awards recognise local governments and community organisations/groups that are Helping Achieve Reconciliation Together. Nominations should be initiatives that demonstrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and non-Aboriginal people working together, and initiatives that have contributed to strengthening relationships, respect and understanding while demonstrating a commitment to Aboriginal self-determination.

The HART Awards will be presented at an event in Melbourne on Friday 31 May 2019, during National Reconciliation Week.

All winners will receive an award. The community category winner will also be awarded a prize of $1000 to support their reconciliation initiatives.

The short-listed and winning initiatives will be profiled in a booklet and promoted on the websites of Reconciliation Victoria, VLGA, Local Government Victoria and Bank Australia to provide inspiration for other organisations and communities.

Nominations are now open for the 2019 HART Awards, closing on Sunday 31st March at 4pm. This year all nominations will be submitted through an online form on VLGA’s website.
