NATIONALS Member for Coffs Harbour, Andrew Fraser, today encouraged the Coffs Harbour electorate community to get involved and vote for their NSW Woman of the Year.

"Six wonderful women have been short listed for the 2012 NSW Women of the Year Awards in the People's Choice - Community Hero category," he said.

"This year more than 200 nominations were received from across NSW showcasing women who have made a significant contribution to their local community.

"It's now up to the community to choose the 2012 People's Choice winner by voting online at www.womenoftheyear.nsw.gov.au.

"The judging panel had a difficult task in selecting a shortlist for the award because the calibre of nominations was so high."

One nomination from the North Coast is Shirley Nelson from Byron Bay, the founder of Feros Care Ltd, a not-for-profit organisation providing aged care.

"I would like to encourage people to get behind these wonderful women and vote now," Mr Fraser added.

"Profiles of the nominees are online at www.womenoftheyear.nsw.gov.au and the community can vote for their favourite until midnight on Monday, May 14."

The winner will be announced by NSW Premier Barry O'Farrell at a special reception on May 24.
