Nominate an Australia Day hero

Strathbogie Shire residents are being reminded they have until November 1 to nominate someone in their community for a 2022 Australia Day Award.

“People don’t volunteer or put up their hand to help others in their community because they’re looking for recognition, they do they do it because they care,” Cr Raeburn said.

“The Australia Day Awards are a way we can say thank you those people. The ones who don’t want recognition, but work behind the scenes to make our Shire a better place to be.

“The COVID-19 pandemic continues to make life difficult for everyone, this is a way we can say thank you to those who have gone above and beyond.

“I urge you to please stop for a minute or two, think about someone you know who gives back to our community and submit a nomination.

“We will be able to celebrate the achievements of so many across our Shire on Australia Day next year.”

Each community has the chance to nominate community members and organisations that deserve recognition for their efforts throughout the year. The awards include:

  • Citizen of the Year (over 25 years at 26/01/22)
  • Senior Citizen of the Year (over 65 years at 26/01/22)
  • Community Organisation of the Year
  • Young Citizen of the Year – (under 25 years at 26/01/22)
  • Junior Citizen of the Year (under 15 years at 26/01/22).
  • Community Event of the Year

The winners will be announced at next year's Australia Day events which will be dependant on restrictions surrounding COVID-19.

Nominations opened on September 20, 2021 and close on November 1, 2021.

All nominations are submitted to the Tourism, Arts and Culture team at Strathbogie Shire for collation.
