DO YOU know a Somerset superhero? What about a local legend?

It doesn’t matter what you call them, they could be Somerset Regional Council’s next Citizen or Young Citizen of the Year.

Nominations are now open for the 2020 Somerset Australia Day Awards, with categories for Arts and Cultural, Sports, Event, Community Group, Young Citizen and Citizen of the Year.

The downloadable form is available at the council website, and nominations close on Friday, 29 November.

Mayor Graeme Lehmann said the awards would be presented next year at a ceremony at Somerset Civic Centre on Sunday, 26 January.

“Each year the Somerset community celebrates the achievements and contributions of residents through the annual awards program,” Cr Lehmann said.

“The awards provide people with the opportunity to recognise someone who makes them proud.

“You can nominate someone in your own family, maybe a friend, work colleague, coach or someone you’ve never met but who you admire and find inspiring.”
