Nominations are open for the Forbes Shire Citizen of the Year (26 years and over) and Forbes Shire Young Citizen of the Year (25 years and younger). The awards recognise and reward community members who have displayed a
consistent record of excellence and made a significant contribution to our community.
Nominations are open to all residents of the Forbes Shire and the awards will be presented at Australia Day celebrations on Thursday, 26th January next year. Australia Day celebrations will be held at Colin McKenzie Park.
Mayor Graeme Miller encouraged residents to put forward a community member who deserved to be recognised as the Forbes Shire Citizen of the Year and Young Citizen of the Year.
“If you know someone who has been the backbone of a community group or has shown an outstanding achievement in academic or sporting fields, make sure you nominate them for the prestigious awards,” the Mayor said. Nominations close at 5pm on 18th January. Forms can be collected from Council’s Administration Office or downloaded from the Council website. If you would like to be involved in the Australia Day planning contact Blake Nicholson on 6850 2355.
