WA DAY 1 JUNE, 2020
What does WA Day mean to Western Australians?
On the first Monday of June each year, Western Australians young and old, from all ethnicities and cultures, unite to celebrate WA Day.
Whether it’s our rich and diverse culture, talented musicians, relaxed lifestyle, world class cuisine or endless blue skies…there are so many reasons for us to celebrate what makes WA, and its people, so unique.
In 2012, Foundation Day was formally changed to WA Day following bipartisan political support in the Western Australian Parliament. This welcomed a new era for the State with WA Day being a universal celebration of all Western Australians, recognising our Aboriginal history, early European settlers and the many people from all over the world who have made, and continue to make, WA their home.
While the world might feel a little different at the moment, we’re encouraging everyone to celebrate this year’s WA Day with the same passion we’ve shown in years past.
Now, more than ever, we know Western Australians have stepped up and made significant contributions to their families, their communities and their workplaces.
And we need your help in finding them.
This WA Day, you’re encouraged to award this certificate to someone who’s inspired you with their actions.
Then, simply share an image of your WA Day Hero using #WADayHero.
Because the person you’ve just recognised with this certificate, deserves to be recognised by all of WA, too.
