Nominate someone special for the 2015 Australia Day Awards

Great Lakes Council is making 2015 Australia Day plans already and they need your help!

Do you know someone living in the Great Lakes area who makes a difference to the community in which you live? There are many quiet achievers within our local communities and region who never ask for acknowledgement. Now is the time to nominate them!

Nominations open on Tuesday 7 October 2014 and close on Monday 24 November 2014 for the 2015 Great Lakes Council Australia Day Awards.

These awards have been established to recognise outstanding achievements or invaluable service to the community by individuals in three categories:

Young Citizen of the Year (over 16 and under 28 years of age as at 26 January 2015);
Citizen of the Year (28 years of age or over as at 26 January 2015);
Sportsperson of the Year (open age).

Open to all residents of the Great Lakes area, this is an ideal chance to recognise the achievements and services of some of our outstanding individuals. It is a unique opportunity for residents, community and sporting groups to acknowledge the hard work of colleagues, family or friends who publicly deserve our thanks.

On Australia Day, let’s really commit to making Australia an even better place by acknowledging those in our community who do so much for so little by presenting them with an Australia Day Award.

These awards will be presented at a ceremony on Australia Day, Monday, 26 January 2015 at Club Forster and eligible nominees will be encouraged to attend the Awards Ceremony.

Applications and guidelines are available by contacting Sue Bookallil at Great Lakes Council on telephone 6591 7295 or on Council’s website at
