C YA Awards

2018 Citizen & Young Achiever Awards - Nominations now open

Each year we recognise people that go the extra mile to make our communities, the District, and the world, a better place.

These people dedicate their time to doing things for others and these awards are an opportunity for us to acknowledge and thank them.

We know they won’t put themselves forward, so we need you to nominate the people you know who are achieving great things, no matter how big or how small.

Nominations have now closed. Awards will be presented at a special awards event.
