NOMINATE NOW FOR AUSTRALIA DAY BAY ISLANDER OF THE YEAR AWARDS
Islanders should submit names now for the Australia Day Bay Islander of the Year Awards 2021.
The awards are held each year on Australia Day with several categories to be awarded.
They are sponsored by The Friendly Bay Islander/Radio FBI and Division 5 Redland City Councillor Mark Edwards.
There are three categories to be recognised:
• Bay Islander of the Year
• Senior Bay Islander of the Year (60 years and over)
• Young Bay Islander of the Year (16 to 30 years)
The online survey for nominations is available from The Friendly Bay Islander website thefriendlybayislander.com
The awards are for those Bay Islanders best showing community spirit and involvement.
The awards are not judged on the number of entries received per person.
A panel makes the selection on the basis of merit.
Australia Day 2021 on January 26 will see Cr Mark Edwards, The Friendly Bay Islander, BIMSARA and the Fishing Club combine to offer a fantastic and free community event to be held at Sandy Beach on Russell Island.
The event will also raise money for children sport on the island and Russell Island Olympic representative, Mara Stransky.
The island Australia Day awards will be presented at this event.
If you know of someone who deserves to be recognised, please NOMINATE NOW!
