They are the tireless workers that make our city a great place to live and now is your chance to make sure they are recognised.

Campbelltown Council is calling for nominations for its annual Australia Day Awards across a range of categories including citizen, young citizen and sportsperson of the year.

Groups can also be entered in the community group initiative of the year category.

Mayor Paul Lake encouraged residents to take the opportunity to nominate an outstanding community member or organisation.

“Our city has many big-hearted, inspirational and talented people who make us proud to call Campbelltown home,” Cr Lake said.

“Being nominated for an Australia Day Award is a huge honour, and a chance to reflect on all the great people who contribute to our city in so many extraordinary ways.’’

All nominees must be Australian citizens who live in the Campbelltown Local Government Area and community organisations must be locally-based.

Nominations close this Friday, November 28 and forms can be downloaded and lodged online.

Winners will be announced during Campbelltown’s Australia Day celebrations on January 26.
