The closing date for nominations for Community Awards has been extended to Tuesday, December 7.

Each year, Council recognises and celebrates significant contributions from local citizens and groups that have made a significant contribution to our community. Nominations can be made for:

  • Citizen of the Year
  • Young Citizen of the Year
  • Community Event of the Year

In 2021, the Dayelsford and District Horticultural Society was awarded Event of the Year for continuing their monthly seminars in an on-line webinar format and opening them to the wider to the community. Town Crier, Philip Greenbank, was awarded Citizen of the year for his services to the RSL and the CFA. Matilda Hill was recognised as Young Citize of the year for her selfless involvement in a wide range of community activities and events.

Recipients of the awards will be announced at a civic ceremony on 25 January 2022, where Council will also be conferring citizenship on eligible members of our community.

For more information about the Awards, including the eligibility criteria, please refer to the Community Awards Guidance Document.
