“Plans to protect air and water, wilderness and wildlife are in fact plans to protect man.”

~ Stewart Udall

Our Collective Responsibility

The Aussie way of life is special.

From our lively suburbs and cities full of diverse cultures, along our extensive coastline, through lush rainforests to the far reaches of the outback and its parched deserts, no one can deny that Australian’s enjoy a rich and diverse culture.

It’s no wonder many of us want to protect our way of life, our natural wonders and world heritage areas for future generations.

The CPAQ Environmental Award was designed to celebrate our Park Members who do just that!

Those who can, do … and those who do, can!

This year, parks who have taken on the challenge of protecting our way of life during the past 2 years can enter to be in the running to win this coveted prize.

The Environmental Award will be presented to a park owner/operator that has implemented an initiative in their business within the last two years which has had a significant and positive impact on their business, their guests and/or local community and, most importantly, the environment.

DID YOU KNOW: About 85 per cent of flowering plants, 84 per cent of mammals, more than 45 per cent of birds, and 89 per cent of inshore, freshwater fish are unique to Australia? (Australia.gov.au)

Writing a winning submission – the 4i’s

Interest

What will catch the judges’ interest? Judges may read a number of entries so think about starting with a clear statement that sets the scene and makes it clear why you are a worthy recipient of the award then expand from there

Innovation

What makes your story unique? Carefully choose words that can help you articulate this – was it the first, the only, the biggest etc

Impact

This is possibly the most important part – make sure you include evidence to back up what you claimed to have achieved. Give actual figures, customer reviews and consider including graphs.  Ensure the judges are truly blown away by your achievements!

Images

A picture is worth a thousand words – consider the careful use of images, charts and diagrams to get your message across
