We were absolutely overwhelmed by the response to these awards and could never have imagined the hundreds of entries we would receive!
Narrowing the entries down to 6 finalists and ultimately a winner for each category was an almost impossible task as so many of you are deserving of the highest accolades. What is very evident is that you have all faced adversity head on and not just survived but thrived and inspired, and that is wothout a doubt the greatest recognition that you can receive whether or not you made it into these finals.
You are all absolutely inspirational and we salute each and every one who entered. Thank you for sharing your amazing stories and accomplishments with us.
Today we announced our winners at an online presentation.
