Nominations open for the 2019 Greater Bendigo Citizen and Young Citizen of the Year
The City of Greater Bendigo is calling for nominations for the 2019 Citizen and Young Citizen of the Year awards.
Mayor Cr Margaret O’Rourke encouraged Greater Bendigo residents to nominate someone they knew who should be recognised for their work.
“Everyone knows someone who gives up their time for their local community group or sporting club,” Cr O’Rourke said.
“Maybe you know someone who is an expert fundraiser and networker who organises lots of events for the community,” Cr O’Rourke said.
“There are many people living across Greater Bendigo who make great contributions through their community service, sporting, academic achievement or their service to arts and culture or the environment.
“The Citizen of the Year awards are a great way to acknowledge their efforts.
“All you need to do is let us know in a short paragraph what makes your nominee an outstanding community member, how they are role models for others to follow or how they have excelled or contributed to the Greater Bendigo community.”
Nominations can be made online at www.bendigo.vic.gov.au/citizenoftheyear before the closing date 5pm Friday November 23, 2018.
Recipients of the awards will be announced in the lead-up to Australia Day 2019.
Nominees must be residents of the City of Greater Bendigo and the Young Citizen of the Year must be under 25 years of age on January 26, 2019.
