Nominations for Devonport City Council’s 2021 Australia Day Awards are now open.
Australia Day is an opportunity to acknowledge and celebrate the contribution that every Australian makes to the nation, and in 2021 the theme is ‘Reflect, Respect, Celebrate’; we reflect on our history, we respect the stories of others and we celebrate our nation, its achievements and its people.
Devonport residents and ratepayers are encouraged to nominate worthy individuals who have made a significant and positive contribution to the Devonport community.
Devonport City Council Mayor Annette Rockliff said whilst it has been a challenging year, the awards present a timely opportunity to reflect and celebrate local residents who deserve to be recognised for their contribution to the community.
“There are many people within our community who do great things, and often those people go unnoticed. If you know someone who deserves to be recognised for their contribution, I encourage you to nominate them for one of the three categories available.”
Award categories include Citizen of the Year, Young Citizen of the Year and Community Event of the Year Award.
“This is a way that we can acknowledge, congratulate and say ‘thank you’ to the unsung heroes in our community,” said Mayor Rockliff.
The Awards are open to residents and/or ratepayers of the Devonport local government area.
Young Citizen of the Year nominees must be aged under 30 years on 26 January 2021.
Nominations can be submitted online here or by completing a nomination form available from Council’s Customer Service Centre, Level 2 , paranaple centre.
Nominations will be open until 5pm, Wednesday, 2 December 2020.
