Nominations are now open for the 2024 Hepburn Shire Council Community Awards.

Each year Council’s Community Awards recognise local citizens and groups who make a significant contribution to our community.

“Community Awards are a great way to recognise those in our community who bring about positive change and make valuable contributions to the wellbeing of the broader community,” said Mayor, Cr Brian Hood.

Nominations are open for awards in the following categories:

  • Citizen of the Year,
  • Young Citizen of the Year, and
  • Community Event of the Year.

Last year’s winners were John Drife (Citizen of the Year), Atticus Punt-Trethewey (Young Citizen of the Year) and The Great Dividing Trail Association Reconciliation Walks (Event of the Year).

Council announces the awards during a Civic Event on 25 January each year.  Anyone can nominate a citizen or community group for an award. Nominations will close at 5pm on 20 October 2023.
