Award nominations open
Nominations are open to recognise some of the unsung heroes of Broome in the Community Citizen of the Year Awards.
Individuals and groups are recognised for their contributions as part of Australia Day celebrations with separate categories for overall, youth, senior, and community group or event.
Broome Shire president Harold Tracey said Broome has many outstanding local role models who would be worthy winners and the awards were an opportunity to recognise those people.
Nominations can be made online at citizenshipawards.com.au which will close on October 31 before the winners are announced on Australia Day 2019.
