Australian Government is calling on communities and local governments across the nation to cast their votes for the 2022 National Awards for Local Government, with voting now open.
Local governments and communities can vote for the outstanding initiatives nominated in this year’s awards that they believe best meet the outcomes of each of the 11 award categories, display excellence and innovation, and can be replicated across regions.
Winners across the 11 award categories will be decided by popular vote, voting is quick and easy and there is no need to register to vote.
The 11 award categories are Creativity and Culture, Productivity through Infrastructure, Regional Growth, Cohesive Communities, Road Safety, Addressing Violence against Women and their Children, Women in Local Government, Indigenous Recognition, Career Starter, Waste Management, and Disaster Preparedness.
Now in its 36th year, these awards recognise the important services local governments provide, by showcasing the achievements and positive impact they have on communities through the work they do in applying creative and tailored solutions to improve social and economic outcomes.
Voting closes on 14 September 2022 and the winners will be announced in October.
