LAST CHANCE: Australia Day nominations close today

IF YOU know a tireless member of the community and you want to give them recognition they deserve then you had better move fast.

Nominations for the 2019 South Burnett's annual Australia Day awards will close on Friday November 9 at 4pm.

The Australia Day awards provide the community with an opportunity to acknowledge and reward outstanding groups and individuals committed to improving the region.

The award categories chosen give our individual communities equal opportunity to nominate those who have made special contributions to their local community.

Award categories are as follows:

  • South Burnett Citizen of the Year
  • South Burnett Young Citizen of the Year
  • South Burnett Community Organisation of the Year
  • South Burnett Lifetime Achievement Award
  • South Burnett Volunteer of the Year
  • South Burnett Junior Cultural Award
  • South Burnett Senior Cultural Award
  • Local Achiever Award (Town & Rural)
  • South Burnett Junior Sportsperson
  • South Burnett Senior Sportsperson
  • South Burnett Sports Administrator/Coach/Official Award

If someone has won an Australia Day Award in the last three years, they are not eligible for nomination in that same category.

The official awards ceremony will be held on the eve of Australia Day, Friday January 25 2019 at the Blackbutt Town Hall.
