Australia Day Awards a celebration of Pure people power

Isaac residents are invited to help celebrate the pure people power which drives the communities of the region by nominating a local champion, quiet achiever or unsung hero for a 2019 Australia Day Award.

Nominations for the annual community awards are now open.

Mayor Anne Baker said the Isaac Region Australia Day Awards were an opportunity to acknowledge and say thanks to some of the region’s most remarkable residents.

“We are region rich in resources, but we are also blessed with the greatest resource of all - our people. Pure people power is helping our communities to thrive as we help to energise the world,” Mayor Baker said.

“These awards are a chance to celebrate that people power and honour those individuals, groups and organisations who have made a significant contribution to our social, civic, sporting and cultural life locally, nationally and internationally.”

The Isaac Region Australia Day Awards comprise the regional awards of Citizen of the Year, Young Citizen of the Year and Event of the Year, and local medallions presented to individuals and groups in each community for sport, culture/arts and achievement.

“I am also honoured to choose a recipient for the Mayor’s Award in each community, selected from the award nominees,” Mayor Baker said.

“Nominees can be from all walks of life from youth, to community groups, to senior citizens. We want to shine a light on the outstanding achievements of everyday people who make us proud to be Australian.”
