MEDIA RELEASE -Final chance to nominate your local heroes

30 October 2018

Glenelg Shire residents are being offered additional time to nominate citizens or community groups for their outstanding achievements, with council extending the deadlines for the 2019 Australia Day awards program.

Nominations for the 2019 Australia Day awards program will close on 4.00pm on Friday 9 November 2018, leaving community members with an extra two weeks to nominate those who have made an exceptional contribution to the shire.

Glenelg Shire Mayor Cr Anita Rank said the local Australia Day Awards were one of the most prestigious honours a community member could receive.

“The Australia Day awards program is an official and inspiring way to acknowledge the contributions and performance made by community groups and individuals in our shire,” she said.

“We all know people, young and old, who are inspirations and dedicate their time and resources for the betterment of the community for no personal gain or benefit. Now is the time to acknowledge those people through these prestigious awards.

“I urge you to nominate your local heroes and help us to award the individuals and community groups you believe are worthy of recognition for their commitment to making the Glenelg Shire a great place to live, work and play.”

Recipients are announced and presented on Australia Day at events held throughout the shire.

Categories for the 2019 awards are:
• 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

Nomination forms can be obtained and lodged online at www.yoursay.glenelg.vic.gov.au. Alternatively, hard copy nomination forms can be collected from any of the Glenelg Shire Customer Service Centres.
