Nominations open for Australia Day awards

Nominations are now open for the 2018 Australia Day Local Government Awards.

Swan Hill Rural City Council is encouraging residents to nominate local community members and groups for their contributions to community and their achievements.

Nominations will close at 5pm on Friday, 23 November for all three categories:

• Australia Day Citizen Award – nominee must be 30 years or older on 26 January 2019
• Australia Day Young Citizen Award – nominee must be under 30 years on 26 January 2019
• Community Event of the Year Award – presented to a person/group who has staged the most outstanding community event during 2018

Mayor Les McPhee said he was looking forward to seeing the nominations come in.

“Every year I am amazed at the stories that come forward of people working to make the lives of others in our community better, to make our communities and clubs stronger, and to put on events that showcase our region,” he said.

“Anyone can nominate a person or event that they believe deserves recognition, so if you have someone in mind, please jump online or get in touch to nominate them.

“Even if you have nominated someone in the past, please put their name forward again. The nominations we receive each year are of a high calibre and these people are deserving of recognition.”

You can fill out an online nomination, collect forms from Council offices in Swan Hill and Robinvale, or contact Robyn Fry on 5036 2361 or

Awards will be presented at 2019 Australia Day celebrations in Swan Hill or Robinvale (depending on winners’ location)
