Calling all fun-loving individuals over the age of 21! It’s time to celebrate outstanding contributions to our local communities by nominating deserving candidates for the Australia Day Awards 2024. This is your chance to recognize those who have gone above and beyond to make our community the best place it can be.

Recognizing Excellence

The Australia Day Awards offer various categories for nominations. The Young Citizen Award is open to individuals between 14 and 26 years old on 26 January 2024, while the Citizen Award is open to those over 27 years old. Additionally, the Community Event of the Year Award acknowledges the best conducted events between November 2022 and October 2023.

‘These awards are a great way to celebrate people in our LGA who have made significant contributions to our community,’ said Mayor Kenrick Winchester. ‘Let’s show our appreciation for their efforts and ensure they know how valued they are.’

Eligibility and Nomination Process

To be eligible for the citizen awards, nominees must have made notable contributions to the community, including acts of compassion, generosity, and bravery. Previous nominees who have not received an award are eligible for re-nomination. However, self-nominations are not accepted. Individuals, clubs, and associations can nominate deserving candidates, but clubs, associations, and organizations themselves cannot be nominated.

The Event of the Year category is open to any event that has contributed to the Queanbeyan-Palerang community and has not previously received an award.

Join the Celebration

Recipients of the Australia Day Awards will be honored at separate events for the Braidwood, Bungendore, Captains Flat, and Queanbeyan communities. It’s time to come together and celebrate the achievements of our fellow community members.
