Hills to Hawkesbury Living Magazine - - Community News -

Do you know a high school stu­dent who has shown great strength by over­com­ing ad­ver­sity? Why not nom­i­nate them for the 2017 Natalie Burton Me­mo­rial Award?

Hawkes­bury City Coun­cil is call­ing for nominations for the an­nual Natalie Burton Me­mo­rial Award on be­half of the Burton, Turner and Lawrance fam­i­lies. Res­i­dents are en­cour­aged to nom­i­nate any Hawkes­bury high school stu­dent, whom they feel is a wor­thy re­cip­i­ent and they could be awarded with the pres­ti­gious Natalie Burton Me­mo­rial Award tro­phy and $200 prize money. Nominations close 5pm Mon­day, 25 Septem­ber 2017.

Natalie Burton was a re­mark­able in­di­vid­ual who died from cancer in March 2003 at the age of 32. Natalie was her­self an ex­cep­tional stu­dent who ac­com­plished a great deal dur­ing her life. This Award aims to see Natalie’s life and her ex­tra­or­di­nary achieve­ments in­spire lo­cal stu­dents to over­come ad­ver­sity in their own lives to still achieve.

Ac­cord­ing to Natalie Burton’s mother, El­iz­a­beth Turner, the award is in­tended for a re­cip­i­ent who has faced chal­leng­ing cir­cum­stances and, de­spite this ad­ver­sity, has still suc­ceeded through their per­sonal ap­pli­ca­tion and de­ter­mi­na­tion.

The award is open to male or fe­male stu­dents and is not re­stricted to aca­demic achieve­ment; it may take the form of com­mu­nity, sport­ing or gen­eral achieve­ments and im­prove­ments.

Nom­i­na­tion forms are avail­able on­line via Coun­cil’s web­site https://www.hawkes­­data/as­sets/ pdf_­file/0011/96635/Natalie-Burton-Me­mo­rial-Award- forap­pli­ca­tion-and-de­ter­mi­na­tion-Nom­i­na­tion- 2017-July.pdf or at the Coun­cil Ad­min­is­tra­tion Build­ing, 366 Ge­orge Street, Wind­sor, or Hawkes­bury Cen­tral Li­brary at Wind­sor or Rich­mond Branch Li­brary or by call­ing 4560 4444.
