Do you know someone who has done something outstanding who deserves to be recognised publicly?

Maybe they’ve coached the local footy team, gone over and above making costumes for school plays, or been a vital part of a local community group – whatever they’ve done, now’s your chance to make sure they’re recognised for the time that they’ve given to our local community.

Each year we recognise and honour the high achievements of ordinary individuals and community groups, who do extraordinary things within Nillumbik Shire. If you know someone who has showed what an asset they to the community during 2020, nominate them now.

Award categories open for nomination are:

  • Young Citizen of the Year (aged between 16 – 30)
  • Senior Citizen of the Year (60+)
  • Volunteer of the Year
  • Community Group of the Year

All individual nominees will be considered for the Nillumbik Citizen of the Year Award.
