Community Australia Day Awards Nomination Open

GYMPIE REGIONAL Council invites residents to nominate a friend, family member, community leader, colleague or even a stranger – anyone in the Gympie region who makes our community a better place to live, in the Community Australia Day Awards.

Spanning eight categories, the awards shine the light on those who have shown particular dedication to the region’s community groups, events, arts, culture or sport, with winners honoured at a special ceremony on Australia Day, Monday 26 January 2015.

Acting Mayor, Cr, Tony Perrett urges residents to nominate people from all aspects of our community and those who may be humble achievers, saying, ‘this is a simple but fantastic way to recognise those who donate their time to help others or commit themselves to any one of the many organisations formed to help others. Let these people know how valuable their contribution is, and nominate them now.’

Nominating is quick and easy, either fill out the online nomination form at gympie.qld.gov.au/australiadayawards, or call Council on 1300 307 800 and they will help you complete the nomination form.
