Liverpool Plains Shire Council (LPSC) has extended the closing date, for receipt of nominations for the Shire’s 2018 Australia Day Awards, through until 4.30pm, Thursday January 18.
“We all know someone who gives their all and makes a difference to our community. I encourage all residents to look around and nominate someone who deserves to be recognised through these awards,” said LPSC Mayor, Councillor Andrew Hope.
“The official nomination form is available HERE from Council’s Customer Service Desk at the Administration Centre, by calling 6746 1755 during business hours, or email a request to firstname.lastname@example.org. Completed forms can be dropped in to the Customer Service Desk or email email@example.com.
“This year, we’ve added the Emergency Services Community Award, which seeks to recognise and raise awareness of the extraordinary contributions of everyone involved in the Shire’s emergency services sector. The category is open to all emergency service agency personnel who operate in our local government area,” he said.
There are now eight categories seeking nominations;
• Citizen of the Year
• Young Citizen of the Year
• Local Legend
• Sportsperson of the Year
• Junior Sportsperson of the Year
• Marie Maunder Community Service Award
• Emergency Services Community Award
• Community Event of the Year
“The LPSC Australia Day Awards celebrate the achievements of individuals who inspire us through their accomplishments, in service to our community, culture and sports. Nominating someone is not only good for the individual. It is also good for the entire community. It encourages other people to follow their example.
“As a community we rely heavily on their commitment and dedication to enriching the fabric of our society and the awards provide an opportunity to say thank you and well done. Be it a friend, family member, workmate or someone you have met while serving the community, nominate them now for a LPS 2018 Australia Day Award,” Councillor Hope concluded.
