Do you know someone in the community who demonstrates exceptional leadership or commitment towards improving the quality of life for others in our community?

From 16 September 2016, Council is calling for nominations for the 2017 Boroondara Citizen, Young Citizen and Volunteer of the Year Awards (nominations have closed).

The awards are open to Australian citizens living, studying, working or volunteering in Boroondara. The Young Citizen Award nominee must be under 26 years of age (as at 26 January 2017).

The winners will be selected by a panel that will assess the nominee’s participation in activities that benefit the community, as well as other criteria.

Nomination forms and award guidelines are available at Citizens Awards. You can also pick up a nomination form at any of Council’s customer service centres or libraries.

The deadline for nominations is 5pm on Friday 11 November 2016.

The awards will be announced at the Boroondara Australia Day Citizenship Ceremony on 26 January 2017.
