City of Parramatta Council is seeking nominations for the Citizen of the Year Awards 2022, which recognise individuals and groups in the Parramatta Local Government Area who have made outstanding contributions to the local community.
“The Citizen of the Year Awards are a wonderful opportunity to acknowledge the people who give their time to make our community a better place,” City of Parramatta Lord Mayor Cr Steven Issa said.
“We have seen so many examples through the pandemic this year of locals rising up to assist those less fortunate. Communities are made up of unsung heroes whose acts of kindness deserve to be celebrated, whether in the arts, education, business, welfare or sports. I encourage you to nominate a person or organisation who you believe should be recognised.”
Nomination categories include Young Citizen of the Year, Citizen of the Year, Senior Citizen of the Year, and the Community Group Award.
Award winners will be announced in January as part of City of Parramatta’s Australia Day celebrations.
Nominations close at 5pm on 2 December 2021.
Council is also seeking Expressions of Interest from people who would like to volunteer to be part of the judging panel for the Awards.
