Last chance to nominate a local hero for Kingborough Awards

The closing date is fast approaching for the Kingborough Awards nominations and the Mayor of Kingborough encourages anyone who wants to see a local volunteer recognised, to submit a nomination by 30 October.

Cr Steve Wass said “There are many people who go about their community work without thinking their role is greatly significant, or who are unaware of the positive impact they have on the lives of people who benefit from their efforts. We have so many dedicated individuals and community groups across our municipality, representing a wide range of interests – from sports, the arts, natural environment to community services.”

The awards are a way of honouring and celebrating the achievements of people and groups that contribute to the quality of life in Kingborough. Whether it is planting trees, working for the local sporting or youth group, or reaching out to new migrants or older residents of our community – there are many who deserve to be recognised and celebrated.

If you know any local champions, we hope you will consider nominating in one of the three categories: Citizen of the Year, Young Citizen of the Year (under 26 years) and Community Group of the Year.

Outstanding nominations are submitted each year and Council thanks those who take the time to complete the forms. This is the most important step towards recognising our local heroes.

Nominations are now open and the online fillable form is available on Council’s website:  or by calling Council’s Community Development Officer on 6211 8200.
