THE nomination deadline for Wollongong City Council’s Australia Day Awards for 2013 has been extended to Friday December 14.
The annual awards recognise the achievements and contributions made by our community members and the categories include:
• Citizen of the Year
• Young Citizen of the Year
• Cultural Award
• Community Award
• Sports Award
Wollongong Lord Mayor Gordon Bradbery encouraged people to get their nominations in before the 5pm deadline.
“It’s always really busy at this time of year, and that’s why we’ve extended the deadline to give people more time to get their nominations in,’’ Cr Bradbery said.
“We have some amazing people doing incredible things in our community to help others. I’d like to see these people recognised for their hard work and dedication, and encourage people to put in a submission on behalf of a family member, a friend or neighbour.’’
The winners of Council’s Australia Day Awards will be announced at a dinner on Thursday January 24.
