Nominations are now open for the West Coast Australia Day Awards, to be presented by the West Coast Council as part of Australia Day 2016 celebrations.
“Communities like the West Coast thrive due to the relentless contributions of volunteers and committees organizing events and providing services to others,” Mayor Phil Vickers said.
“We are encouraging people to nominate an individual who has made an outstanding contribution to the West Coast community during 2015, or an individual or organisation who hosted an outstanding West Coast event during 2015.”
Awards will be presented for Citizens of the Year Award (for persons 25 years or older), Young Citizen of the Year Award (for persons under 25 years of age) and Community Event of the Year.
The nomination process has been streamlined this year, with nomination forms available here or from the Council Office.
Nominations must be received by 5pm, Friday 27 November 2015.
