WA LIONS HALL OF FAME
Why A Hall of Fame?
The WA Lions Hall of Fame was established in 2012 to
celebrate the outstanding contribution made by individual
Lions in WA. Whilst most Lions don’t seek recognition, it is
right that we acknowledge those in our clubs that go above
and beyond consistently and for a sustained period of time.
Who can be nominated?
Any current member of a Lions Club or a deceased Lion
who has made a significant contribution to Lions and their
community in Western Australia. They do not have to have
served on Cabinet. Indeed many already admitted to the
WA Lions Hall of Fame are “Club only” Lions. Lions
members currently resident in another state or who have
been members interstate are eligible to be nominated,
however it is only their contribution to Lions in Western
Australia that will be taken into account.
Who can nominate?
Any Lions Club in Western Australia. Nominations must be
on the official Nomination Form. The Nominee does not
have to be, or have been, a member of that particular Club
How are nominations assessed?
Nominations will be assessed by a panel of judges
consisting of WA Lions Hall of Fame Committee members
(W1 & W2) and eminent non Lion Western Australians. In
considering nominations, the judging panel will take into
account the degree and value of their contribution to their
community as well as the District and or State. Length of
Service whilst considered will not be the primary focus.
How much information is required in
As much as possible. The judges are unlikely to know as
much as you do about the nominee. So include everything
you possibly can. That way you will give the person the
very best chance they can to catch the judges eye.
Does it cost anything to nominate
Yes. We are asking Clubs to pay a fee of $115.00
per nomination. The fee will be used to offset costs
involved. This includes the cost of the award night itself
(those that are nominated will NOT have to pay for their
dinner). It will also go towards the cost of the plaques and
What if the person we nominate misses
No one will miss out. Firstly being nominated is a huge
honour in itself. Every person nominated will also receive a
framed certificate acknowledging their nomination.
Secondly, all nominations will be automatically considered
for the following two years, so there will be no need to
nominate them again for that period of time.
How will the Awards be presented?
A special WA Lions Hall of Fame Dinner & Presentation
Night will be held on Friday 1st November in Perth to
honour and recognize the contribution that Lions have
made in Western Australia over the past 57 years and to
honour a number of Lions that have given exceptional
service during the past 57 years.
Will there be equal representation
between W1 Lions and W2 Lions?
No, not necessarily. We are acknowledging the
outstanding Lions from throughout Western Australia
and recipients will be those deemed the most worthy at the
time by the judging committee. (Don’t forget that for many
years WA was just one District)
How many Lions will be inducted?
In keeping with the prestige of this award, the number
inducted each year will be capped at 3, making this a very
