The Australia Day Council of South Australia is calling for nominations for the 2022 Australian of the Year Awards, seeking your help to ensure our state’s best continue to receive the recognition they deserve.
It only takes one nomination for someone to be considered for the Australian of the Year Awards and that crucial nomination could be yours. Your nominee(s) can be recognised in one of our four categories:
• Australian of the Year: Celebrating the achievements and contributions of eminent Australians who are role models for us all.
• Senior Australian of the Year: Recognising those Australians aged 65 and over who continue to achieve and make a difference.
• Young Australian of the Year: Celebrating inspiring 16 to 30 year olds who have accomplished great things in all walks of life.
• Australia’s Local Hero: Established in 1999, Australia’s Local Hero acknowledges people making a difference in their local community.
Nominating someone is easy to do – visit australianoftheyear.org.au by July 31 and tell us who they are, what they have achieved and why you’d like to see them recognised.
The website helpfully includes selection criteria and tips for nominating.
