Bayside Australia Day Awards nominations now open
Know someone who goes up and beyond for the Bayside community?
Monday 11 October 2021
They say in times of challenge – look for the helpers. And we are on the look-out for those who have helped our community and Bayside overall in this year of many challenges.
Nominations are now open to recognise individuals or groups who have gone above and beyond in their efforts.
Many local heroes have stepped up in 2021, assisting others during the COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting hardships and challenges. Some are young, some are older, all are making a difference in our community.
Some in our community have been working to support others or to help keep Bayside connected via events – online or innovatively in person. Others have worked to protect or conserve the wonderful environment of Bayside. All of these efforts are worthy of recognition.
You can help to recognise these contributions by nominating them for a Australia Day Award. It’s easy.
The award categories are:
- Citizen of the Year (27 years or older on January 26 2022)
- Young Citizen of the Year (under 27 years on January 26 2022)
- Senior Citizen of the Year (over 65 years on January 26 2022)
- Community Event of the Year (can be virtual or in person)
- Environmental Achievement – Individual
- Environmental Achievement – Organisation
Applications close 10 December 2021. The winners will be announced on Australia Day 2022.
