Australia Day nominations now open
Lockyer Valley residents are encouraged to start nominating deserving community members, events and groups for the 2022 Lockyer Valley Australia Day Awards.
Nominations are now open for the 2022 Awards and will remain so until mid-November.
Lockyer Valley Mayor, Cr Tanya Milligan encouraged residents to acknowledge the volunteers, community leaders and givers in our community to ensure they receive the recognition they deserve.
"Here in the Lockyer Valley we are fortunate to have so many individuals and groups who volunteer their time, week after week, to help others.
"Although these people don't do it for the recognition, nomination for an Australia Day Award is a nice way to say your efforts are valued.
“As a Council we are always keen to recognise those who are making our community the wonderful place it is,” Mayor Milligan said.
Award categories include:
• Citizen of the Year
• Young Citizen of the Year
• Junior Sportsperson of the Year
