Australia Day Awards 2020 Australia Day Awards 2020

Nominations are open now and close on Friday 29 November 2019.

It's a day for all Australians; it’s a day to celebrate our diversity and what makes this country great, to consider where we've come from, to recognise where we are now, and what kind of a future we want to build together as a united nation. We all have a contribution to make, to be proud of our cultures, and to build relationships.

Let us recognise our everyday Australian community members and nominate someone who is giving their time and services to the community, going the extra mile or perhaps a quiet achiever who is truly making a difference. Tell us who impresses and inspires you, so we can honour and acknowledge them on Australia Day 2020.

Nominations are open now for the following categories:

  • Citizen of the Year
  • Young Citizen of the Year
  • Community and/or Cultural Event of the Year
  • Sports Award (athlete or sports administrator)

NB: nominations cannot be made by an immediate family member of the nominee. All nominees must be a resident of the Paroo Shire at the time of nomination.

Nomination forms are available from the the front desk at Council's Broad St Depot or download one here.
