Each year Ballina Shire Council recognises our local heroes through the Australia Day Awards.
However, there’s a catch for the awards to be successful – and that’s community participation.
We are urging you to nominate someone who is a local hero in your eyes. Whether they are a friend, family member, associate or community leader – if they are someone you admire or are inspired by, nominate them today.
Applications are now being accepted in the following categories:
- Young Citizen of the Year (30 years of age or under)
- Senior Citizen of the Year (60 years of age or over)
- Local Hero
- Sports Award (individual, team or administrator)
- Arts/Cultural Award
- Community Event of the Year
It is easy to nominate online at ballina.nsw.gov.au
Nominations close Friday 1 December 2017.
Award winners will be announced at the official Australia Day ceremony on Friday 26 January 2018 at the Lennox Community Centre.
