Mayoral Column

Have you heard about our Hawkesbury Australia Day Awards coming up for 2019? These awards are a special way to recognise outstanding local people who have done something special for our community, people who continue to achieve and contribute to the Hawkesbury. Nominations are now open for the 2019 Hawkesbury Australia Day Awards and I encourage you to nominate someone worthy for these awards. You will also go into a draw to win one of five $100 Coles/Myer gift cards as their nominator.

Nominations can be made in one or more of these categories: Citizen of the Year, Young Citizen of the Year, Local Hero Award, Volunteer of the Year, Community Arts Award, Cultural Heritage Award, Environmental Award, Community Organisation of the Year, and Commemorative Plaque. The Committee is responsible for assessing all nominations received, with judging to take place in early December.

The winners will be announced on Friday, 25 January 2019 at Governor Phillip Park at a special awards presentation. Visit here for more information or to nominate someone - all nominations need to be completed online by 5pm Friday, 2 November 2018. Unsuccessful nominations may also be resubmitted in subsequent years. All nominees must be residents of the Hawkesbury or non-residents who have significantly contributed to the Hawkesbury community.
