Completing the Form

Nominations may be submitted by groups (e.g. committees, associations etc) or individuals.

When filling out the nomination form it is important to provide specific examples of how the nominee’s contribution(s) has been outstanding.
Nominations must give clear, adequate and precise details of the person’s/group’s involvements. Please state roles performed by the nominee, outline how their leadership benefited the community and indicate the degree of involvement and examples of their commitment.

The nature of the award places emphasis on what the person/group has done for the community in their various fields of voluntary involvement, rather than recognising achievements as part of normal duties in their paid occupation. The degree and value of the contribution, as well as the length of service, are the primary criteria.

Awards will be presented by the Mayor at the Kingborough Awards ceremony to be held on Saturday 5 January 2019.

Nominations close at 5pm on Monday, 8 October 2018.

If you have any questions, or require guidance in the preparation of the nomination form, please call Council’s Community Development Officer on 6211 8170 or email: awards@kingborough.tas.gov.au
