2020 Citizen of the Year Mark Forbes, Senior Citizen of the Year Mark Skinner, Young Citizen of the Year Ella Woodborne.

This year has been a rollercoaster and our Sunshine Coast community has truly shown strength and compassion. We’ve seen and heard many incredible stories of ingenuity, selflessness and giving, which is why the 2021 Sunshine Coast Australia Day Awards will be so special.

If you know someone in our community, or a community group or organisation making a difference to our Sunshine Coast, help them to achieve the recognition they deserve by nominating them for an award today.

Nominations close on November 16.

Sunshine Coast Council Mayor Mark Jamieson said there was no doubt this had been a challenging year for us all so what better way to lift someone’s spirits than by nominating them for a Sunshine Coast Australia Day Award?

“The Sunshine Coast Australia Day Awards celebrate the achievement and contribution of individuals and community organisations across our healthy, smart, creative region,” Mayor Jamison said.

“We’re looking for everyday people as nominees.

“They don’t have to be famous to be nominated for our Australia Day Awards.

“We want to honour the unsung heroes in our community.”

Mayor Jamieson said an Outstanding Achievement Award would also be presented at the 2021 awards.

“The COVID-19 pandemic has seen many people go above and beyond to support our community and the 2021 Sunshine Coast Australia Day Awards will look to recognise those special people,” Mayor Jamieson said.

Nominations for the 2021 Sunshine Coast Australia Day Awards close on November 16, 2020. You can nominate online via council’s website.
