MEDIA RELEASE - Nominate a local hero

14 September 2020

Glenelg Shire residents are encouraged to shine the spotlight on their local unsung heroes and nominate them for an Australia Day Award.

Council is calling for nominations for the 2021 Australia Day Awards, rewarding individuals and organisations that have made a noteworthy contribution to the community in the areas of arts, education, health, volunteering, community connection, sport and more.

Nominations are accepted for the following categories:
• Citizen of the Year - awarded to a Shire resident aged over 25
• Young Citizen of the Year - awarded to a Shire resident aged under 25
• Senior Citizen of the Year - awarded to a Shire resident aged 60 or over
• Community Group of the Year - awarded to an organized community group based in the Glenelg Shire

Glenelg Shire Mayor Cr Anita Rank said the Australia Day Awards provided the perfect opportunity to recognise those who had made a difference during the pandemic.

“The past few months have highlighted just what a compassionate and resilient community we have here in the Glenelg Shire,” she said.

“There have been some truly inspiring individuals and community groups who have gone above and beyond to provide free local initiatives, programs and services - there has been an overwhelming show of support to help one another during these difficult times.

“I urge you to think about these local heroes who have selflessly organised, donated or created and nominate them for an Australia Day Award. Now is the time to shine the spotlight on those who have made positive contributions to our community.”

Nominations can be lodged online via the Your Say Glenelg website. Alternatively, hard copy nomination forms can be collected from any Glenelg Shire Customer Service Centre.

Nominations for the 2021 Australia Day Awards close 16 October 2020.
