Nominate your local hero for Australia Day!

Do you know an outstanding member of the community that should be recognised? Nominations are about to close for the 2016 Premier’s Australia Day Active Citizenship Awards.

The City of Greater Geraldton invites both Geraldton and Mullewa residents to nominate a local community member or group who they think should be recognised for their important contribution to the community.

City of Greater Geraldton Mayor, Shane Van Styn, said there have been many worthy recipients of the awards and people should think about acknowledging their fellow locals for the hard work that is put into making Greater Geraldton the fantastic community it is.

“The awards foster, recognise and celebrate significant contributions to community life and active citizenship in all local government areas of Western Australia,” he said.

“We have seen some amazing nominees in the past and I would urge locals to have a think about those who have and continue to make a positive difference.”

The four awards which will be presented at Australia Day celebrations on Tuesday, 26 January 2016 are:

·         Premier’s Australia Day Active Citizenship Award

·         Premier’s Australia Day Active Citizenship Award for a person under 26 years

·         Premier’s Australia Day Active Citizenship Award for a community group or event

·         City of Greater Geraldton Young Achiever of the Year for a person under 21 years

Two local citizens and one local community group from both Geraldton and Mullewa areas will be eligible for Premier’s Australia Day Active Citizenship Awards.

The recipients will be selected from people and groups who have made a noteworthy contribution during the current year, or given outstanding service over a number of years through active involvement to the local community.


Nominations close on Friday, 4 December 2015.
