Nominate Local Heroes Making a Difference in Your Community
The 2024 Wyndham Citizen and Young Citizen of the Year Awards are set to accept nominations between October 1st and October 31st. Wyndham City Mayor, Cr Susan McIntyre, is encouraging residents to actively participate by submitting their nominations.
These prestigious awards serve as a tribute to the exceptional dedication and remarkable contributions of Wyndham City residents who actively contribute to the betterment of the community.
The scope of recognition is wide-ranging and encompasses various domains such as education, healthcare, fundraising, charitable and voluntary services, business, sports, arts, environmental initiatives, and more. It is likely that you have encountered individuals who consistently go the extra mile to serve our community, whether within the workplace, local community organizations, or sports clubs.
These unsung heroes often work tirelessly behind the scenes to assist others, and they tend to be the last ones to seek recognition for their efforts. Therefore, the act of nominating someone for these awards carries immense significance. The awards provide an excellent opportunity for the community to express gratitude and appreciation.
Additionally, the recognition bestowed by these awards can significantly bolster the recipients’ ongoing work, particularly in supporting the growth and development of young residents, as exemplified by the Young Citizen of the Year award, which is available to individuals aged 16 to 25. The Citizen of the Year award, on the other hand, is open to those aged 26 and above.
Nominating someone for these awards is a straightforward process. Interested individuals can visit www.wyndham.vic.gov.au/citizenawards and complete the online nomination form. An impartial judging panel will assess the nominations, and the winners will be publicly announced in early 2024.
Don’t miss the opportunity to nominate deserving individuals for the 2024 Wyndham Citizen and Young Citizen of the Year Awards, as nominations will be accepted from October 1st to October 31st, 2023.
