Talent shines at BPW North Lakes’ Awards Night

BPW North Lakes held its inaugural Awards Night on Friday, 25 May at North Lakes Hotel to recognise outstanding women in the Moreton Bay Region.

The winners were chosen in each of the five categories by a judging panel of members from the community including local Labor MP, Chris Whiting (Member for Bancroft).

BPW Awards Night Coordinator, Kylie Stretton, who also chaired the ceremony, said “it was an extraordinary night with heaps of inspirational women.”

Women from the region were nominated across a variety of categories including Youth, Student Bursary, Sports Achievement, Humanitarian, and Inspirational with the judges awarding a Recognition Award on the night due to the high standard of the nominees.

All winners received a bunch of roses, etched glass vase commemorating their category win, and a certificate in recognition of their achievement.

BPW North Lakes are proud to announce the winners:

  • BPW North Lakes Youth Award – Lauren Plaistow
  • Smile Home Loans Student Bursary Award – Jillian Stansfield
  • BPW North Lakes Sports Achievement Award – Tianah Potter
  • Century 21 North Lakes Humanitarian Award – Rochelle Courtenay
  • Bright Training & Employment Partners Inspirational Woman Award – Trish Springsteen
  • Judge’s Recognition Award – Kylie Burford

Nominees were required to write about their future aspirations and goals, achievements and interests as well as share one aspect about BPW that resonates with them.

This information was provided to the panel of judges who interviewed each nominee and had the tough decision of choosing one winner in each category.

BPW North Lakes has gone from strength to strength since its charter in 2015. President Beck Parry and members welcome the public to their monthly luncheon. BPW North Lakes meet the third Thursday each month at the North Lakes Hotel at 11.30am.
