2 December 2016 Australia Day Awards 2017

Australia Day Award nominations have been extended until Friday December 9, so it’s not too late to nominate someone you know who deserves recognition for their achievements. 

“We all know someone who is quietly achieving great things in the arts, or sport, or just simply doing amazing things for the community,” said Coffs Harbour Mayor, Councillor Denise Knight.

 

“We have a fantastic community and it’s made up of individuals who are great role models, or who spend most of their free time helping others or encouraging the talents of our youth.

 

“Let’s show them how proud we are of them by giving them the credit they’re due.”

 

Nominations are invited from individuals, service clubs, schools, associations or community organisations in the following categories:

 

  • Citizen of the Year Award

  • Young Citizen of the Year Award

  • Sportsperson of the Year Award

  • Volunteer of the Year Award

  • Sue Hunter Memorial Award

 

Nomination forms are available to download here or can be picked up from the Council Administrative Centre.  Please contact Christine Artist at the Mayoral Office on 6648 4002 for details.
