Australia Day Awards nomination close next week

Date published: 10 December 2021

Don’t forget to nominate an exceptional Townsville local for the 2022 Australia Day Awards before entries close next week.

The awards span seven categories: Citizen of the Year, Young Citizen of the Year, Arts and Culture Award, Community Volunteer Award, Senior Sports Award, Junior Sports Award and Environmental Excellence and Sustainability Award.

Mayor Jenny Hill said nominating a Townsville local for the Australia Day Awards was one of the best ways to thank them for their service to the community.

“We’re lucky in Townsville to have so many quiet achievers who help make our city a fun, inclusive and enjoyable place to live,” Cr Hill said.

“It’s important that these humble heroes are recognised for the important work that they do to make Townsville shine, so if you know someone who fits into one of our seven award categories, you should nominate them now.

“I look forward to presenting the winners with their awards each year and 2022 will be no different. Get your nominations in now to help shine a light on the great work that our Townsville locals are doing in our community every day.”

Nominations are open until Tuesday 14 December 2021.
