South Burnett locals are now able to nominate someone for an Australia day award.
Nominations for the annual ceremony have opened now with the forms on the councils website: http://www.southburnett.qld.gov.au/
This year the event will be held in the region on the 25th of January at the Murgon Town Hall.
Mayor Keith Campbell says there's a lot of deserving people in the region:
“We here at Council always receive a lot of nominations for the Australia Day Awards so I encourage again, that those will know who those people are within their region, who do make a difference, giving up their time voluntarily, to nominate.”
These awards provide the community with an opportunity to acknowledge and reward outstanding groups and individuals committed to improving the lifestyle experience in our region.
The award categories that have been chosen give our individual communities equal opportunity to nominate those who have made special contributions to their local community.
