Nominate a local hero for Sunshine Coast Australia Day Award
If you know a person, community group or organisation making a difference to life on the Coast, give them the recognition they deserve by nominating them for a 2017 Sunshine Coast Australia Day Award.
Mayor Mark Jamieson launched the awards today, Monday, September 19, encouraging residents to nominate a local hero.
“The Sunshine Coast Australia Day Awards have been running since 2009 and have recognised the achievements of many outstanding local residents and community groups,” Mayor Jamieson said.
Mayor Jamieson said this year’s Sunshine Coast Australia Day Awards ceremony had special significance as it would be the first official celebration event of the 50th Anniversary of the Naming of the Sunshine Coast.
“2017 will be an exciting milestone year for our region where we plan to celebrate and commemorate the people that have shaped and defined the Sunshine Coast,” Mayor Jamieson said.
“The Sunshine Coast Australia Day Awards and the celebration of our local heroes is a befitting event to kick of our year of celebrations.”
