Sunshine Coast Daily - Caloundra Weekly - - NEWS -

IF YOU know a per­son, com­mu­nity group or or­gan­i­sa­tion mak­ing a dif­fer­ence to life on the Coast, give them the recog­ni­tion they de­serve by nom­i­nat­ing them for a 2018 Sun­shine Coast Aus­tralia Day Award.

Mayor Mark Jamieson launched the awards on Septem­ber 15, en­cour­ag­ing res­i­dents to nom­i­nate a lo­cal hero.

“In 2018, we will cel­e­brate the 10th an­niver­sary of the Sun­shine Coast Aus­tralia Day Awards,” Mayor Jamieson said.

“Over the past decade we have been able to recog­nise and hon­our an out­stand­ing list of win­ners from a wide cross-sec­tion of our com­mu­nity – and I’m sure 2018 will be no dif­fer­ent.

“You don’t have to be fa­mous to be nom­i­nated for our Aus­tralia Day Awards, we’re look­ing for the un­sung he­roes.

“The per­son may be young or old, have achieved some­thing truly special, it may have been a brave act, an act of un­par­al­leled kind­ness, or an act of sac­ri­fice for a greater good.

“We need to think about those who have made a dif­fer­ence to us all here on our Sun­shine Coast and then we need to nom­i­nate them for a 2018 Sun­shine Coast Aus­tralia Day Award.”

If you know a per­son, com­mu­nity group or or­gan­i­sa­tion wor­thy of an award, nom­i­nate them now in one of the seven cat­e­gories.

Nom­i­na­tions close on De­cem­ber 4, 2017.
