Know a local hero who has stood out in your community over the last year?
Get in early and nominate them for a 2022 Central Highlands Australia Day Award, with submissions open until 5.00 pm 30 November 2021.
With a sense of normalcy returning to the region, Mayor Kerry Hayes said this year’s awards are our chance to formally recognise, celebrate, and reward the unsung heroes who have championed their community in good times and bad.
‘Australia Day Awards are always about thanking those people who make our communities a better place – by the work they do, the encouragement they offer or simply the passion they show,’ Mayor Hayes said.
‘It’s been inspiring watching our community band together this year, even in the face of lockdowns and restrictions, and continue to thrive.’
‘I am looking forward to recognising those who have gone above and beyond for our community over this time, and encourage everyone to nominate someone you would like to thank for making a significant contribution to the Central Highlands.’
2022 Central Highlands Australia Day Award categories are:
Citizen of the Year
Young Citizen of the Year
Community Event of the Year
Senior Sportsperson/ Administrator of the Year
Junior Sportsperson of the Year
