Nominations now open for Australia Day Awards 2022


Gympie Regional Council is inviting residents to shine the spotlight on a friend, family member, community organisation or leader who has contributed to our region's culture, excelled in sport or made positive contributions to our community, by nominating them for an Australia Day Award.

Nominations are now being accepted across five categories, including Citizen of the Year, Young Citizen of the Year (no starting age), Creative Award (open to all ages), Sports Award (open to all ages) and Community Group, Event or Organisation of the Year.

Gympie Regional Council Mayor Glen Hartwig says he is looking forward to next year’s event, as it celebrates those who go above and beyond for the good of our region.

“Within the Gympie region we are fortunate to have so many talented individuals and groups who are dedicated to making our community a great place to live.

“The Australia Day Awards provide a fantastic opportunity to acknowledge those people and community organisations who work tirelessly and love being involved in our wider community.

“I encourage everyone within our region to nominate someone they know who deserves to be acknowledged for the contributions they make,” he said.

Submissions close at 5pm, Sunday 12 December, 2021.
