Australia Day Awards
On Australia Day we embrace our most valued community members and acknowledge their outstanding contribution to our communities with Australia Day Awards.
Citizen of the Year and Young Citizen of the Year is awarded to a person who has a significant contribution to the community, is an inspirational role model and the individual’s contribution to the local government area.
Community Event of the Year is awarded on the quality of the event, the scope of impact it has on the local government area and the event’s contribution to the community.
The Achievement Medallions for Groups and Individuals are awarded for Culture, Achievement and Sport across the region. Medallions are to recognise an individual or group who have contributed positively to their community, in their respective category.
In 2020 there are two new award categories, the regional-level Corporate Community Contribution award and the local Community Business Award, recognising the important contribution the region’s businesses, big and small, make to our towns.
Corporate Community Contribution of the Year recognises both large corporations operating in Isaac region and/or small to medium enterprises (SMEs) for significant events and/or initiatives which better the community.
All Australia Day Awards will be presented at your local community event.
Becoming a citizen of Australia is the final legal step in your migration story. It is a process in which a non-Australian citizen voluntarily becomes an Australian citizen. Australian citizens pledge their loyalty to Australia and its people and are then entitled to its protection and to exercise their rights and responsibilities as citizens.
A Citizenship Ceremony will be held on Australia Day at the Moranbah Community Centre from 10.30am. Find out more
