On the 26 January each year, the City of Palmerston celebrates Australia Day at its Official Ceremony, which includes the raising of the National Flag of Australia, welcoming the country’s newest residents with a special citizenship ceremony and presenting the City's coveted Australia Day Awards.
With our vision for Palmerston being ‘A Place for People”, the Australia Day Awards are the ideal opportunity to acknowledge and recognise the selfless efforts of individuals and groups within our community who actively embrace this vision.
City of Palmerston Mayor Athina Pascoe-Bell has called on residents to start nominating.
“The Australia Day Awards are a proud tradition for the City of Palmerston and give us the chance to publicly thank those who make such a valuable contribution to our community.”
“All it takes is a few minutes of your time to fill out a nomination form to help recognise someone’s great work in the community.”
If you know of an individual or community organisation that has made an outstanding, positive impact in Palmerston, please nominate them for these prestigious awards.
Categories for the 2021 awards are as follows: Citizen of the Year, Young Citizen of the Year, Community Event of the Year
Nominations can be made on Council’s website www.palmerston.nt.gov.au, and will close 27 November 2020.
Award winners will be announced at City of Palmerston’s Australia Day celebrations, held on 26 January 2021 at the Palmerston Recreation Centre.
