If you know an outstanding citizen who has made a worthwhile contribution to the Somerset community, now is the chance to have their efforts recognised.

The annual awards acknowledge residents and groups who have made a considerable contribution to their local community.

Nominations are being accepted in the following categories: Citizen of the Year, Youth Citizen of the Year, Arts and Culture, Sports, Event of the Year, and Community Group of the Year award.

Nominations close Friday, November 18.

Somerset Mayor, Councillor Graeme Lehmann, said the awards would be presented, and winners announced, next year at a ceremony at the Somerset Civic Centre in Esk on Thursday, January 26.

“Each year the Somerset community celebrates the achievements and contributions of residents through the annual awards program,” Cr Lehmann said.

“The awards provide people with the opportunity to recognise someone who makes them proud.

“You can nominate someone in your own family, maybe a friend, work colleague, coach or someone you’ve never met but who you admire and find inspiring.”
