We are currently calling for nominations for the 2021 Australia Day Awards and encourage people to nominate outstanding members of our community to recognise the valuable contribution they make to the Byron Shire!

Do you know someone worthy of recognition for their contribution to the Byron Shire? 

The Australia Day Awards recognise the achievements of individuals who inspire us through their accomplishments in service to our community, culture and sports, and challenge us to make our own contribution to a better Australia.

The nominated person could be from your school or sporting group, your neighbour, a carer or someone in your church. They may be involved in community projects or events, a friend or family member. Whoever comes to mind, they are someone who works selflessly to help improve the community you live in and the lives of others.  

Categories for nominations are:

• Citizen of the Year (no age limit)

• Young Citizen of the Year (aged up to 25 years as at 26 January 2021)

• Senior Citizen of the Year (aged over 60 years as at 26 January 2021)

• Sports Person of the Year 

• Volunteer of the Year

• Creative Artist of the Year 

• Environmental Project of the Year

• Community Event of the Year

Persons may be nominated by individuals, community groups or organisations. 

Make your nomination for the 2021 Australia Day Awards by completing our online form at www.byron.nsw.gov.au/australia-day  

Nominations close: 4.00pm Friday 4 December 2020
