Council calling on Shoalhaven Medal nominations
May 31, 2012
Shoalhaven City Council is reminding local residents to get their nominations in for the 2012 Shoalhaven Medal Awards.
The Shoalhaven Medal recognises those residents that have made an outstanding contribution to the local community or achieved a level of excellence in a particular field of endeavour.
Nominations will be judged on the length and quality of service provided to an organisation as well as acts of compassion, generosity or bravery.
Council is partnering with Australian Paper – Shoalhaven in coordinating the 2012 Shoalhaven Medal with the local paper mill coming on board as the major sponsor.
Mayor Paul Green thanked Australian Paper – Shoalhaven for their sponsorship of the event saying he was always pleased to see Shoalhaven companies supporting the local community.
“I would like to thank Australian Paper – Shoalhaven for their very generous support of this important local award,” said Clr Green.
“It is extremely pleasing to see a Shoalhaven company recognising the hard work and commitment of the area’s many volunteers and paying tribute to the Shoalhaven’s many quiet achievers.
“Council is currently calling for nominations for the 2012 Shoalhaven Medal Awards and I would certainly encourage all residents to get involved and help recognise the area’s many local heroes.”
“Nominations can be given to those that have made an outstanding contribution to the local community or achieved a level of excellence in a particular field of endeavour.”
The Shoalhaven Medal will be awarded in three categories –gold, silver and bronze.
