Australia Day Award nominations extended

Nominations for Liverpool’s Australia Day Awards have been extended until September 26.

Liverpool Mayor Wendy Waller is calling for residents to nominate hard-working people in the community who provide valuable contributions to Liverpool.

“There are many outstanding members of our community who go above and beyond in their daily life to help others,” said Mayor Waller.

“Often these are unsung heroes who are quietly making Liverpool a better place. These people typically don’t put themselves forward.

“This is an opportunity to give them the recognition they deserve.

“I encourage all residents to think about people they know in the community and nominate someone for one or more of the categories.

“We are fortunate to have many dedicated people in our community, and I look forward to seeing them recognised through these awards.”

Liverpool’s Young Citizen of the Year, Maleeka Gazula, was honoured to be an award recipient this year and encourages others to nominate.

“It means so much to be recognised by the community and the people I work with,” Ms Gazula said.

“The Australia Day Awards recognise and dignify the monumental contributions of our people and everything that makes the community of Liverpool as great as it is.

“Use this opportunity to put forward an individual in the community who has a true passion and strong drive for what they do.

“Nominate someone who you believe is deserving and has worked hard to achieve goals that address and support the interests of the wider community.”
