Nominations open for Redlands Coast Australia Day awards

It’s time to recognise inspirational Redlands Coast residents who generously give their time to make our region the best it can be.

Redland City Mayor Karen Williams said nominations are now open for the 2020 Australia Day Awards, which recognise the outstanding contributions made by people of all ages to our city.

“Every year we are amazed at the efforts of those who make the lives of others in our community better,” she said.

“These awards are a nod to all the work, passion and initiatives that key individuals and groups give in making Redlands Coast a more positive place.

“Whether they’re a tireless community advocate or long-serving volunteer, their dedication and sense of civic pride deserves to be recognised.

“Community groups and individuals are encouraged to step up and nominate our everyday champions who have given selflessly to the community.

“I encourage anyone who knows a neighbour, friend, family member or colleague who is deserving of recognition through an Australia Day award to nominate them so we can celebrate and recognise their contribution.”
