Nominations for Australia Day Awards closing soon

7 November 2018

Wattle Range Council is keen to know who you think should be an Australia Day Award recipient.

The Australia Day Awards recognise individuals and organisations that have made a noteworthy contribution to the community over the last 12 months.

Council’s Chief Executive Officer Ben Gower said, “Nominations from our community are essential in making the awards successful. Each year Council invites the community to identify and nominate individuals or organisations who have made a significant contribution to Wattle Range”.

2018 Australia Day Young Citizen of the Year (Riddoch Ward), Ella Kain said, “When I was fortunate enough to be a recipient of the Young Citizen of the Year award, I was extremely honoured. My small efforts and contributions to the community were being recognised, which meant the most to me. The award made those around me also realise that their efforts and dedication to committees, community events and sporting groups do mean a lot to the local community.”

Nominations for the 2019 Awards are now open, and include:

  • Citizen of the Year
  • Young Citizen of the Year; and
  • Community Event of the Year

Forms can be completed either online or in hard copy and are available from Council’s website or from the Council Offices in Millicent, Penola and Beachport.

The winners will be celebrated as part of the local Australia Day events hosted by service clubs in Beachport, Kalangadoo, Millicent & Penola on Australia Day, January 26.

Further information is available on the Wattle Range Council website at www.wattlerange.sa.gov.au/AustDAYAWARDS or by contacting any of Council’s offices.

Nominations must be received by Friday, 16 November 2018 to be considered as part of the 2019 Australia Day Awards.
