Australia Day is a day to reflect on our journey: acknowledge our past, rejoice in the present and look confidently to the future.
It is also an opportunity to acknowledge and celebrate the contribution of individuals and organisations that have made a noteworthy contribution during the current year, and/or give an outstanding service over a number of years to the community, over and above normal employment duties.
Outstanding contributions and community service includes areas such as: education, health, fund-raising, charitable and voluntary services, business, sport, arts, the environment, or any other area that contributes to the advancement and well-being of our community.
All residents of the King Island Municipal Area are eligible and nominations of non-residents who have made an outstanding contribution to the community will also be considered.
The selection panel for the awards comprises the Mayor, Deputy Mayor and Councillors. The awards will be presented at Council’s Australia Day Celebrations on 26 January.
