Reminder to nominate - Natalie Burton Memorial Award

Hawkesbury City Council is calling for nominations for the annual Natalie Burton Memorial Award on behalf of the Burton, Turner and Lawrance families. Nominations close Friday, 17 August 2018.

Residents and high schools are encouraged to nominate any high school student from the Hawkesbury Local Government Area who would be a worthy recipient for the prestigious Natalie Burton Memorial Award trophy and $200 prize money.

The award is intended for a recipient who has faced a challenging circumstance and, despite this adversity, has still succeeded through their personal application and determination. This could be a disability, illness or a serious accident, the loss of a family member or other situations that sometimes present in life.

The award is open to male or female students and is not restricted to academic achievement; it may take the form of community, sporting or general achievements and improvements.

Natalie Burton was a remarkable individual who died from cancer in March 2003 at the age of 32. Natalie was herself an exceptional student who accomplished a great deal during her life. This Award aims to see Natalie’s life and her extraordinary achievements inspire local students to overcome adversity in their own lives to still achieve.

Nomination forms are available online www.hawkesbury.nsw.gov.au/services/people/community-awards/the-natalie-burton-memorial-award or at Council Administration Building, 366 George Street, Windsor, Richmond Branch Library and Hawkesbury Central Library at Windsor or by calling 4560 4430.
