Do you know a local citizen or group who has made an outstanding contribution to the community in 2019? Nominate them for an Australia Day Award!
The annual awards recognise the outstanding efforts of residents who dedicate themselves to making a positive difference in our community. Applications are now open for 2020 for the following five categories:
Camden Citizen of the Year, which is for residents who have made noteworthy contributions during the year and/or given outstanding service to the community in a non-work-related capacity over a number of years;
Young Citizen of the Year, which is for residents who have given outstanding service and made a positive impact on the community in 2019 or longer;
Sports Achievement Award, which recognises a committed sportsperson, sporting team, coach, volunteer or official, whose actions inspire and encourage others whilst enriching the Camden community through sport, healthy living or physical activity;
Community Group Award, which recognises groups whose tireless work and close contact with the community encourages diversity, inclusivity and continues to make Camden a great place to live; and
Arts and Cultural Award, which will go to a person or group who have made an influential or valuable contribution to the city through any art form, including drama, visual art, music, verse, dance, cultural heritage, expression, literature, film and multimedia.
Nominations will close on Friday 13 December.
The winners will be announced on Australia Day, Sunday 26 January 2020, at a public ceremony at the Camden Civic Centre.
