Celebrate your local hero this year by nominating a community member of Moree Plains Shire for Moree’s 2020 Australia Day Awards.
This year the prestigious award includes seven categories, all which are currently open for nominations, being:
- Citizen of the Year
- Young Citizen of the Year (20 years old or younger)
- Community Event/Group of the year
- Sports Person of the Year
- Volunteer of the Year
- Volunteer Group/Sport Group of the Year
- Environmental Citizen of the Year
Mayor Cr Katrina Humphries is encouraging all residents to support the awards this year by nominating individuals and groups that they believe have made a significant difference in the Shire.
“We need to acknowledge and celebrate the individuals and community groups who worked tirelessly to build our community and deliver activities and events for us to enjoy with our children and friends.
“A nomination can make a real difference to an individual or community group and ensures their contribution to our community is appreciated and acknowledged. The nomination process is fast and easy; I am sure every resident in the community knows at least one person who deserves a nomination.
The winners of each category will be announced on Australia Day and on Council’s website and Facebook page.
Nomination forms are available Council’s customer service offices in Moree and Mungindi, at the Moree Community Library or by contacting Moree Lions Club on (02) 6752 1226.
