Aus­tralia Day award dead­line loom­ing

The Cobram Courier - - NEWS -

Time is run­ning out to nom­i­nate a com­mu­nity hero for the 2018 Moira Shire Aus­tralia Day Award Cer­e­mony.

Aus­tralian cit­i­zens who have made a sig­nif­i­cant vol­un­tary con­tri­bu­tion dur­ing 2017, or who have given out­stand­ing ser­vice to the lo­cal com­mu­nity over a num­ber of years, are el­i­gi­ble.

But it’s not just in­di­vid­u­als who can be nom­i­nated. A project or event that a school, com­mu­nity group or or­gan­i­sa­tion has run, which went that ex­tra mile to help their lo­cal area, can also be nom­i­nated.

There are five award cat­e­gories: Cit­i­zen of the Year (open age), Young Cit­i­zen of the Year (up to 24 years of age), Com­mu­nity Event of the Year, Com­mu­nity Or­gan­i­sa­tion of the Year and En­vi­ron­ment Project of the Year.

Nom­i­nees and their guests will be cel­e­brated at an awards even­ing hosted by Moira Shire Coun­cil in Jan­uary as well as be­ing recog­nised at their own town’s Aus­tralia Day fes­tiv­i­ties.

Nom­i­na­tions for the 2018 Aus­tralia Day Awards close on Thurs­day, Novem­ber 30.

Nom­i­na­tion forms can be down­loaded from www.moira.vic. or picked up from a Moira Shire ser­vice cen­tre in Yar­ra­wonga or Co­bram. For more in­for­ma­tion, phone 5871 9222 or email
