Nominate a community hero for the 2013 Australia Day Awards
October 29, 2012
Shoalhaven City Council is reminding local residents to get their nominations in for the 2013 Australia Day Awards with entries closing this Friday 2 November.
The Australia Day Awards provide Council an opportunity to recognise those residents who continue to give tirelessly to the community.
Local residents are currently being asked to nominate in the categories of Citizen of the Year, Young Citizen of the Year, Senior Sports person and Junior Sports person.
Shoalhaven City Council Mayor, Joanna Gash said the Shoalhaven was literally flooded with community minded residents eligible of receiving nomination in the 2013 Australia Day Awards.
“The Shoalhaven is home to an amazing amount of hard working volunteers, all of which would be worthy recipients of an Australia Day Award,” said Clr Gash.
“While many of the area’s volunteers and community leaders do not seek plaudits for their work it is important, that as a community, we recognise their ongoing efforts.
““I would certainly encourage all residents, community groups and organisations to nominate those tireless workers and sportspeople who are continuing to make a positive difference in the community for an Australia Day Award.”
The Awards are divided into four categories:
• Citizen Award – for a person over 25 years;
• Young Citizen Award – person 25 years or less
• Senior Sports Award – person over 18 years
• Junior Sports Award – person up to 18 years
Nomination forms are available at Shoalhaven City Council Administrative Offices and Libraries in Nowra and Ulladulla or by contacting the Executive Support Section on (02) 4429 3264.
Nominations close on Friday 2 November 2012.
