Nominate an unsung hero in our community

Released 1 September 2017

Nominations are now open to recognise some of the unsung heroes in our community in the prestigious Community Citizen of the Year Awards.

Each year in Broome individuals and groups are recognised as part of the Australia Day breakfast at Town Beach, with Lee Anderson, Seth Lovell and the Broome Sports Association the winners in 2017.

There are separate categories for individuals, under 25s, over 65s and a community group or event, and nominations can be made online at and at the link below.

Acting Broome Shire President, Harold Tracey, said nominees should be active citizens who had made a contribution to making Broome a better community.

“Broome has many outstanding local role models who would be worthy winners of these important awards,” Cr Tracey said.

“The Community Citizen of the Year Awards are an opportunity to recognise the special individuals and organisations who make a difference in our Shire, and we encourage community members to take the time to nominate a deserving person or group.”

Nominations close on Tuesday 31 October 2017 and winners will be announced on Australia Day 2018.
