Whether they are a nominee or recipient, we can all celebrate their outstanding contribution, because we’re all part of the story.

· Community Citizen of the Year (for individuals over 16 years)
· Young Community Citizen of the Year (for individuals aged 16-30 years)
· Senior Community Citizen of the Year (for individuals aged 65 years and over)
· Active Citizenship (for community groups or events)

Nominations can be made for contributions to education, health, fundraising, voluntary services, business, sports, arts, the environment, social inclusion or any other area that enhances the wellbeing of our community. For the full criteria, visit
