LAST CHANCE: Nominate an ‘unsung hero’

TIME is running out to nominate an “unsung hero” in Livingstone for the 2021 Australia Day Awards.

There are less than two weeks left until nominations for the awards close, with residents encouraged to get behind their mates and nominate a community champion.

Australia Day Award’s Committee chairman Councillor Adam Belot, said while there had been some fantastic applications already submitted, there was still time to nominate someone you believed was doing an outstanding job in the community.

“Council is calling on the Livingstone community to show their support for an unsung hero they believe contributes to making this region a better place,” he said.

Awards will be presented in the following categories:

  • Citizen of the Year;
  • Young Citizen of the Year;
  • Community Group Service Award;
  • Living Legend Award;
  • Outstanding Dedication to Public Service Award.

Nominations close on December 1. For more information or to nominate, go to www.livingstone.qld.gov.au/homepage/100/australia-day-awards.
