The LPSC Australia Day Awards celebrate the achievements of individuals who inspire us through their accomplishments, in service to our community, culture and sports. Nominating someone is not only good for the individual. It is also good for the entire community. It encourages other people to follow their example.

As a community we rely heavily on their commitment and dedication to enriching the fabric of our society and the awards provide an opportunity to say thank you and well done. Be it a friend, family member, workmate or someone you have met while serving the community, nominate them now for a LPS 2018 Australia Day Award.

This year, we’ve added the Emergency Services Community Award, which seeks to recognise and raise awareness of the extraordinary contributions of everyone involved in the Shire’s emergency services sector. The category is open to all emergency service agency personnel who operate in our local government area.

There are now eight categories seeking nominations;
