It’s time to nominate those who make a difference in the community.

Nominations are now open for the Rural City of Wangaratta’s Australia Day Awards.

“Australia Day provides an opportunity to not only celebrate our beautiful country, but also to recognize outstanding contributions to our community by local individuals and community groups,” Mayor Ken Clarke OAM said.

“If you know someone who has made a notable contribution to Wangaratta or its smaller communities and think they deserve to be recognized, we want to hear about it.”

Nominations are now open for awards in the following categories:

-       Citizen of the Year,

-       Young citizen of the Year,

-       Community Event of the Year and

-       Local Achiever of the Year.

Recipients will be presented with their awards at the 2018 Australia Day celebrations held across the municipality. Nominations close on Friday, 1 December at 4pm.
