29 August 2017

Do you know someone making a positive difference in the Kingston community?

Nominations are now open for the 2018 Citizen of the Year Awards, which honour outstanding achievements of individuals and community groups in Kingston.

Kingston Mayor David Eden said there were plenty of people who deserve to be thanked for making a significant contribution to the community.

“These awards are a great chance to celebrate and acknowledge the many residents who tirelessly volunteer their time and effort to make Kingston a stronger and more connected community,” Cr Eden said.

“They highlight the strong sense of community spirit in Kingston, and show the high calibre of people we are fortunate to have contributing to our great city”.

The awards are open to Australian citizens who either live, work or study within the City of Kingston, and are presented in the categories of:

  • Citizen of the Year
  • Community Group of the Year.

Nominations for the Awards close 5pm Friday 10 November 2017.

All nominees will be honoured at a community function held later this year. Winners of the awards are announced at the annual Australia Day Breakfast on 26 January 2018.
