Nominations are now open for the annual City of Clarence Australia Day Awards.

The City of Clarence Australia Day Awards reward and recognise individuals and organisations that have made a noteworthy contribution to their local community, above and beyond normal duties.

The award categories include Citizen of the Year, Senior Citizen of the Year, Young Citizen of the Year, and Community Event of the Year.

Clarence City Council Mayor Doug Chipman said it is a wonderful way to acknowledge efforts of inspiring people from all walks of life and ages, along with community events that contributed so greatly to our city.

He said with the unprecedented events that have occurred throughout 2020 this year’s awards committee would be looking for, in particular, those community members, organisations and events that had shown initiative in supporting and growing our community in outstanding ways.

“Take the opportunity to pay tribute to someone who you believe is a worthy recipient, someone who helps make Clarence a brighter place,” he said.
