If you know someone who makes our community a better place, celebrate their achievements by nominating them for the 2022 Community Citizen of the Year Awards.

Announced each year on Australia Day, the awards recognise individuals and organisations who make an outstanding contribution to our community.

City of Gosnells Mayor David Goode encouraged local people to consider nominating those in the community who have truly made a difference.

“Every community has local heroes, whether they have given outstanding service over many years or have made a valuable contribution this year,” the Mayor said.

“There are awards for young people, seniors, individuals and groups or events which contribute to all aspects of life in the City of Gosnells – from education and health, to charitable and volunteer services, business, sport, the arts and environment.

“Last year’s very deserving recipients Brad Thomasz, Dean Morris, Unice Robinson and the Huntingdale Junior Football Club all contributed to our community in a variety of ways, including sport, the environment and animal welfare.

“Let’s use this opportunity to celebrate the many other talented and dedicated community members in our City.”

The awards, run by Auspire – The Australia Day Council of WA, are presented at the City’s Australia Day event on 26 January and include the following categories:

  • Community Citizen of the Year
  • Community Citizen of the Year – Youth (under 25 years)
  • Community Citizen of the Year – Senior (65 years or over)
  • Active Citizenship – Group or Event

Nominations close on Sunday 31 October.

Information and nomination forms are available from the City’s Civic Centre or online at https://www.citizenshipawards.com.au/
