The City of Fremantle is encouraging residents to acknowledge their local heroes by nominating them for the Community Citizen of the Year Awards.
The awards will recognise individuals and organisations that have made a standout contribution to their local community. Outstanding contribution and community service includes areas such as education, health, fundraising, charitable and voluntary services, business, sport, arts, the environment, social inclusion or any other area that enhances community wellbeing.
The awards are split into four categories including Citizen of the Year, Senior Citizen of the Year (65 years or over), Young Citizen of the Year (under 25 years) and the Active Citizenship Award (community group or event).
The awards will be presented on Australia Day, 26 January. Nominations can be made at the Citizenship Awards website. To be eligible, nominees must reside, work or volunteer principally within the City of Fremantle. Nominations close 31 October.
