Mayor Mark Honey said the Kiama region was well-known for its community spirit, and encouraged people to take time to nominate their local hero.
“Our local heroes often think they’re not worthy of special recognition. For this reason, we rely on the awareness of others to nominate them,” Cr. Honey says.
“We rely on friends, family and colleagues to nominate these great Australians so their contributions can be recognised.”
Nominations are open in the following Australia Day categories:
* Citizen of the Year
* Young Citizen of the Year
* Sports Awards
* Community Arts Award.
And for the Kiama Council Achievement Awards:
* Service to the Environment
* Community Achievement Award
* Youth Achievement Award.
Details: Nominations close Friday 25 November,
and can be completed online at www.kiama.nsw.gov.au or on a form obtained from Council.
