The purpose of the draft Community Service Awards Policy is to recognise the outstanding contributions of the Northern Beaches’ residents and volunteers by publicly acknowledging and thanking them in a spirit of community pride.

The draft Policy includes

  • Australia Day Citizen of the Year Awards (5 awards)
  • Outstanding Community Service Awards (15 awards)

All nominees must be residents of, or events held within, the Northern Beaches Local Government Area, with the exception of the Outstanding Community Service awards whereby one non-resident may be awarded.

Recipients are objectively selected by a Selection Panel on merit and against the Award criteria.

The Australia Day Awards are announced and presented at or around the timing of the Northern Beaches Australia Day celebrations on 26 January each year.
