Nominations are Now Open for the NSW Local Citizenship Awards

By Lithgow City Council
Posted: 17 Oct 2020
Lithgow City Council encourages community recognition of local individuals and organisations for outstanding contributions to the Lithgow LGA.

“Our community has shined this year. All the challenges we’ve faced throughout 2020 have highlighted the generosity, dedication, and care we have for one another within our community,” said Lithgow City Council Mayor Ray Thompson. “The Citizenship Awards are an opportunity to celebrate our resilient spirit, and I urge everyone to nominate someone or an organisation deserving of recognition.”

The NSW Local Citizenship Award categories are:

  • Volunteer of the Year Award (Young Citizen and Open Citizen)
  • Citizen Achievement Award (Young Citizen and Open Citizen)
  • Service to the Community Award (Organisation)
  • 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 Citizen 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 26 years. The Service to the Community Award (Organisation) 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 Outstanding Event Award recognises the significant contribution that special events make to our region.

Nomination forms can be found online or are available from the front counter of the Lithgow City Council Administration Centre and all Lithgow Library Branches.

Nominations will close on Tuesday 17th November.  

Winners of all awards will be announced Tuesday 26th January 2021 at the Australia Day Ceremony.
