Australia Day Local Awards

Nominate A Local Hero Now!

Each year our nation celebrates the achievement and contribution of local Community members through the Australian of the Year Awards. They inspire us through their achievements and challenge us to make our own contribution to creating a better Mornington Peninsula.

Do you know someone whose dedication and commitment makes our community a better place, a person who will go that extra mile beyond their paid employment or commit hours of their personal time to the benefit of others?

Thank them for their valuable and selfless contribution by nominating them for Citizen or Young Citizen of the Year in the 2018 Australia Day Local Awards.

  • Citizen of the Year
