Nominations are now open for Devonport City Council’s 2020 Australia Day Awards.
Devonport residents and ratepayers are encouraged to nominate worthy individuals who have made significant contributions to the Devonport community. Award categories include Citizen of the Year, Young Citizen of the Year and Community Event of the Year Award.
The Awards are open to residents and/or ratepayers of the Devonport local government area.
Devonport City Council Mayor Annette Rockliff said the awards were an opportunity to recognise those who make important contributions to the community or have achieved something extraordinary.
“There are many people within our community who do great things, and this is one way in which we can celebrate them,” she said.
“Making an Australia Day Award nomination is a simple process which only takes a couple of minutes. It can be done online, or people can pick up a nomination form at Council’s paranaple centre office. You’ll be helping recognise somebody who deserve our congratulations and thanks.”
Young Citizen of the Year nominees must be aged under 30 years on 26 January 2020.
Nomination forms can be obtained from Council’s paranaple centre office or https://www.devonport.tas.gov.au/live/your-community/awards/australia-day-awards/
Nominations will be open until 5pm, Monday, 2 December 2019.
