Who are your Community Citizens of the Year?

Released 16 September 2019

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

Each year individuals and groups are recognised as part of Australia Day celebrations, with Michael Haji Ali, Jazmin Shipway-Carr and Cable Beach Football Club the winners in 2019.

There are separate categories for Overall, Youth, Senior, and Community Group or Event, and nominations can be made online at the link below.

Broome Shire President, Harold Tracey, said Broome had many outstanding local role models who would be worthy winners of these important awards.

“Nominees should be active citizens who have contributed to making Broome a better community for all of us,” 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 31 October 2019 and winners will be announced on Australia Day 2020.
