Australia Day Award Nominations Now Open
Mid-Western Regional Council Mayor Des Kennedy is calling on residents to put forward nominations for the 2019 Australia Day Awards.
“The award categories have been reviewed and there are now 7 categories to nominate someone who has made a difference in our community and deserves recognition for their achievements and contributions,” Cr Kennedy said.
“Throughout the year we often hear about people going out of their way to improve our community and we’re really looking forward to recognising them formally.”
Cr Kennedy said contributions come in all forms, with the 2018 Mid-Western Region Citizen of the Year, Carolyn Peek recognised for her service of others, especially those with an intellectual disability.
“There is a category to suit all achievements from sports to the arts and community,” Cr Kennedy said.
“It’s very easy to nominate and can be done online via Council’s website or if you’d prefer complete a nomination form available at Council’s Customer Service Centres or libraries.”
Outstanding achievements, contributions towards the community, sporting achievements and a strong support of community values are the basis of the 2019 Mid-Western Regional Council Australia Day Awards.
Nominees must be Australian citizens and must reside within the Mid-Western Regional Council area.
Nominations close on 26 November 2018.
Mid-Western Regional Council’s Australia Day Celebrations will take place at Anzac Park, Gulgong Saturday, 26 January 2019.
Information about each of the categories and nomination forms are available on Council’s website.
