Will you be nominating this year?
North Burnett Regional Council is calling for nominations for the 2018 Australia Day Awards from clubs, organisations, schools and individuals within each of the six North Burnett Communities of Biggenden, Eidsvold, Gayndah, Monto, Mount Perry and Mundubbera.
North Burnett residents have the opportunity to nominate deserving recipients for the Australia Day Awards throughout the year, ensuring more of our amazing community members are recognised. Community members are encouraged to submit nominations as soon as possible, such as after a successfully run event or sporting achievement while it’s still fresh in your mind.
Mayor Rachel Chambers said that the Awards are a time to celebrate and acknowledge those outstanding individuals and organisations that have made a significant contribution to their community.
“It is very important that we recognise and acknowledge the contributions individuals and community groups make to the fabric of our community. Council encourage all residents to nominate an individual or group who has made a significant contribution to their local community and/or achieved exceptional results in sporting, volunteering or cultural endeavours,” Mayor Chambers said.
Council invites you to submit an awards nomination form prior to 4:30pm Friday, 24 November 2017.
To encourage families to attend Australia Day events throughout the region, the popular ‘Australia Day Baby Certificates’ will once again be available to all families that celebrate the birth of a new arrival. An application form can be downloaded from Council’s website (See Community / Australia Day) or collect an application form at any of Council’s Customer Service Centres / libraries. Don’t forget, these certificates can only be collected at your local Australia Day event.
It is easy to nominate… Nominations can be completed online, see Council’s website, or collect a nomination form from any of Council’s libraries or Customer Service Centres. Nominations can be posted to: CEO, Australia Day Nominations, North Burnett Regional Council, PO Box 390, GAYNDAH QLD 4625, emailed to Council, faxed to 07 4161 1425 or lodged at any of Council’s Customer Service Centres / libraries prior to 4:30pm Friday, 24 November 2017.
