Nominate an Australian of the Year
If you know or have heard of a great Aussie who deserves a gong, then consider making a nomination for the Australian of the Year.
The person doesn’t have to be well known, doesn’t have to be a household name – just a person who deserves recognition for having made a contribution in the community or in a particular field. Someone who stands out and has made an impact.
The following release is from Matt Miles , Executive Officer, Australia Day Council of South Australia
Nominations are now open for the Australian of the Year Awards, one of the pre-eminent recognition programs in the country. Over 128 remarkable Australians across 4 categories (Australian of the Year, Senior Australian of the Year, Young Australian of the Year and Australia’s Local Hero) will be recognised across every State and Territory.
In South Australia 16 outstanding people will be recognised at a ceremony to be held at Adelaide Oval on 12 November 2014 with 4 of these people heading to Canberra on Australia Day to be considered for a national award.
