Do you know someone making a positive difference in the Parkes Shire?
Nominations are now open for the 2019 Parkes Shire Council Community, Cultural, Environmental and Sports Awards, including the Ron Harrison Sports Bursary.
Parkes Shire Mayor, Cr Ken Keith OAM said “we are proud to have a number of individuals and groups making outstanding contributions to the Parkes Shire community.”
"These people are often quiet achievers who contribute to our shared vision of a harmonious, positive and progressive community."
“The annual Australia Day awards are designed to publicly acknowledge and reward the fantastic work of these community members and groups, and encourage others to follow their lead.”
"For the first time, we are delighted to introduce an Environmental Award to recognise individuals or groups who are positively contributing to the preservation or promotion of our unique environment within the Shire."
The awards cover the 2018 calendar year to-date and will be announced during the Australia Day Awards ceremony in January 2019.
