Style Magazine - - Contents -

Ev­ery year, Aus­tralia cel­e­brates its cit­i­zens, their achieve­ments and con­tri­bu­tions to their com­mu­nity, and all it means to be Aus­tralian.

Nom­i­na­tions for Toowoomba’s Aus­tralia Day Awards closed on Wed­nes­day, Oc­to­ber 31, and the com­mit­tee has been work­ing hard at the task of se­lect­ing the awards re­cip­i­ents.

Awards cat­e­gories in­clude the cit­i­zen and young cit­i­zen of the year, Abo­rig­i­nal and Tor­res Strait Is­lan­der cit­i­zen of the year, the cul­tural award, the ju­nior and se­nior sports awards, and the com­mu­nity group or event of the year.

Some of the past re­cip­i­ents of the cit­i­zen of the year award, in­clude the most re­cent Abo­rig­i­nal and Tor­res Strait Is­lan­der re­cip­i­ent, Debra An­der­son.

Debra is a com­mu­nity sup­port and re­fer­ral of­fi­cer who as­sists mem­bers of the Abo­rig­i­nal and Tor­res Strait Is­lan­der com­mu­nity with hous­ing, health, youth and em­ploy­ment is­sues.

The 2018 cit­i­zen of the year, is none other than Sergeant Cam Crisp of the Toowoomba PCYC, cel­e­brated for his con­tri­bu­tion to the youth of the Gar­den City.

This year’s re­cip­i­ents will be an­nounced at Aus­tralia Day com­mu­nity events and every­one is en­cour­aged to join in the cel­e­bra­tions.

Toowoomba has a di­verse com­mu­nity, filled with loads of peo­ple will­ing to go the ex­tra mile for their fel­low men and women, to en­sure every­one gets a fair go.

Why not join your com­mu­nity in thank­ing those who give their all?
