Council seeks nominations to recognize the achievements of local individuals and their contribution to the Lithgow LGA community. Awardees will be announced and celebrated at the Australia Day Ceremony on 26 January 2018.

“The Citizenship Awards are an important opportunity to recognise the contribution and achievements of individuals within our community,” said Lithgow City Council Mayor, Ray Thompson. “I encourage everyone to nominate a colleague, friend, or community leader. “

The NSW Local Citizenship Award categories are:

  • Volunteer of the Year Award (Young Citizen and Open Citizen)
  • Achievement Award (Young Citizen and Open Citizen)
  • Service to the Community – Organisation Award
  • Recognition of Outstanding Event Award

 

The Volunteer of the Year Award is for people who have given their time freely to help the community within the Lithgow LGA. The Achievement Award is for those who have excelled in their chosen field which may include academia, business, the arts and sciences or community service. The Young Citizen Category is for people between the ages of 16 and 26 while the Open Category is for all ages over 16 years.

The Service to the Community – Organisation Award is for organisations which aim to enrich the lives of the people in the Lithgow area.  This organisation does not have to be a volunteer organisation.  The Recognition of Outstanding Event Award  will be given in recognition of the many events in Lithgow that are making such a difference to our town.

Nomination forms are available from the front counter of the Lithgow City Council Administration Centre, at all Lithgow Library Branches and online. Nominations will close on Monday 26th November.  Winners of all awards will be announced Saturday 26 January 2018 at the Australia Day Ceremony.
