Is there a person you believe delivers outstanding benefits to the community? A young person who stands out as an ambassador in our community, or a person who has achieved great results in sport?
If so, now might be a good time to nominate them for the 2021 Australia Day awards.
Cootamundra-Gundagai Regional Council is calling for nominations, which will be open until Friday November 20.
Nominations can be made in three categories: Citizen of the Year, Young Citizen of the Year and Sportsperson of the Year/Sports Achievement.
All residents from the Cootamundra-Gundagai Regional Council area are eligible for nomination.
The Australia Day awards provide the opportunity for recognition for the many residents who enrich our council area, through community service and outstanding achievement.
Achievements can be a single outstanding achievement in the last year or numerous achievements over many years.
Council in conjunction with the Australia Day Council, proposes to present its Annual Australia Day Awards on January 26 at two separate ceremonies, one to be held in Cootamundra and one in Gundagai.
Nominations are to be in writing (by letter, or on the form available from Council Offices and website) and received by Council no later than 1pm Friday 20th November 2020.
The Citizen of the Year Award is for all persons of any age, whilst the Young Citizen Award is for persons aged up to 25 years as at 31 December 2020. The Sportsperson/Sports Achievement Award is open to all ages.
People who have been nominated previously but who have not won an award are eligible for re-nomination.
