Nominations for the Australia Day Council WA, Community Citizen of the Year Awards 2019 are open.
The City of Rockingham encourages residents to nominate an individual or group that has made our community a better place.
The awards recognise individuals and organisations that have made a notable contribution during the current year and/or those who have given outstanding service over a number of years.
There are four categories available for the awards and they include Citizen of the Year, Citizen of the Year – Youth (under 25 years of age), Citizen of the Year – Senior (over 65 years of age) and Active Citizenship – Group or Event.
City of Rockingham Mayor Barry Sammels said the awards were a chance to formally recognise the unsung heroes of our community.
“Right across the City there are a number of residents and organisations that put in a tremendous amount of work to help the community, quite often with little or no recognition,” Mayor Sammels said.
“Whether it be for a local sporting group, social club or charity, these residents and groups continually put the community first.
“In many cases they are the backbone of all the great things that happen in the City, which is why I encourage residents to nominate an individual or group who they feel has made a positive contribution.”
The awards are presented on Australia Day at the City’s Australia Day Citizenship Ceremony.
Nominations for the Community Citizen of the Year Awards 2019 close on 31 October 2018.
