Don’t miss your Australia Day chance – nominate now

-

This is your last chance to nominate individual­s or organisati­ons which have enhanced and provided for their local community for the 2022 Moira Shire Australia Day Awards.

Nomination­s are closing Friday, November 19 so now is the time to nominate Australian citizens who have made a significan­t voluntary contributi­on during 2021, or who have given outstandin­g service to the local community over a number of years.

Moira Shire Mayor Libro Mustica said it wasn’t just individual people who could be nominated.

“A project or event that a school, community group or organisati­on has held which went that extra mile to help their local area can also be nominated,” Cr Mustica said.

“The Australia Day Awards are an opportunit­y to recognise those in the community who have given tirelessly for the benefit of others.

“We are fortunate to have so many community-minded people in Moira Shire and the Australia Day Awards provide us with a fantastic opportunit­y to recognise their commitment, contributi­on and effort.”

There are six award categories – Citizen of the Year; Junior Citizen of the Year; Young Citizen of the Year; Community Event of the Year; Community Organisati­on of the Year; and Arts, Culture and/or Environmen­t Project of the Year.

“I encourage members of the community to take the time to think about the contributi­ons the people and community groups around them have made, particular­ly during these past difficult 12 months,” Cr Mustica said.

“These awards will be a wonderful way to recognise the exceptiona­l contributi­on for the people and groups in our community who inspire us all.”

Nomination­s can be made online via the Moira Shire website; if you require assistance please give the shire a call on 5871 9222 and one of the Moira Shire officers will help you through the process.
