These annual awards recognise people who volunteer, do community work, or excel in sport or other endeavours.

“A chance to recognise our unsung heroes who put in many hours as volunteers to make our community a great place to live and raise a family,” said Lismore City Mayor Isaac Smith.

“Australia Day Awards give us a chance every year to honour those passionate people in our community who dedicate a large part of their lives to building a stronger and healthier community with no thought of personal gain,” he said.

“If you have a friend who works hard for a volunteer group, know a student who is kicking goals in life or admire a person for the work they do for our community, please nominate them.

“It only takes 5-10 minutes to complete an online nomination, so please get online before the deadline and nominate today.”
