Nominate your local heroes for Logan’s Australia Day Awards

Do you know someone in the City of Logan who works tirelessly to improve the community?

Nominate them today for Logan City Council’s Australia Day Awards to ensure their efforts are acknowledged.

City Image Committee Chairperson, Councillor Laurie Smith, said the awards were about ensuring that ordinary people doing extraordinary things were duly recognised for their efforts to help improve the lives of others, and the community in general.

“Your local hero may be a devoted volunteer, an inspirational teacher, an innovative entrepreneur or someone who gives selflessly week in, week out to help others enjoy a better life,” Cr Smith said.

“Logan’s Australia Day Awards celebrate locals like 2017 Citizen of the Year David Kenny and 2017 Young Citizen of the Year Samuel Glancy, who don’t think twice about helping others and making a positive difference across our city.”

Council is seeking nominations from the community in the following categories to acknowledge the achievements of fellow residents:

Citizen of the Year – presented to a person for their outstanding endeavours, achievements and community involvement.

Young Citizen of the Year – presented to a young person (aged under 27 years at 26 January 2018) who has made a noteworthy contribution during the current year and/or given outstanding service to the local community over a number of years.

Nominations for the 2018 awards close on Friday, 8 December 2017. The winners will be presented with their awards on Friday, 26 January 2018 at a special function at the Beenleigh Events Centre.
