2010 2ND ANNUAL SLIM DUSTY COMMUNITY MATESHIP AWARDS & THE INAUGURAL COUNTRY ENERGY SLIM DUSTY COMMUNITY YOUTH AWARD
Nominate your mate, family member, community leader, colleague, student or yourself now to be in the running to win the 2nd Annual Slim Dusty Community Mateship Awards or The Country Energy Slim Dusty Community Youth Award.
Slim Dusty, the Australian King of Country, was this Nation’s most celebrated, and respected Mate. In addition to his popular music and lyrics that depict Australian culture, Slim sang about life – about things that really happened and about real people. As long as his music and legend lives on, so too will the history of the changing face of Australian culture through the lyrics of his timeless songs, Slim Dusty held integral values in life, and he lived by these values which created a certain integrity, respect and rapport that went hand in hand with his identity...his life values of Fairness, Mateship, Family and Community along with Learning.
The Slim Dusty Foundation along with Country Energy are proud to celebrate these values, as they stand for well-built components of Australian life that is mateship, a fair go for all, working and living together, engaging with your community, constantly looking forward whilst learning from the past – and of course, to value your family.
From these values, Slim Dusty Community Mateship Awards, and The Country Energy Slim Dusty Community Youth Awards have been developed as an annual presentation to recognise and acknowledge worthy people within the community who represent these values, and make a positive contribution to community and society.
This is our second year, and whilst there would be many, many people throughout Australia worthy of an award of such high esteem, there will be only three – two Slim Dusty Community Mateship Awards and one Country Energy Slim Dusty Community Youth Award. For 2010, and into the years to follow, the Slim Dusty Community Mateship Awards and the Country Energy Slim Dusty Community Youth Award will celebrate and acknowledge very special Australians, as is reflected in the namesake of these most honoured awards…..
