Nominations for the 2015 Australian of the Year close tomorrow.
The Australian of the Year Awards were created in 1960 and recognise Australians who have done great things for the community.
There are four categories people can be nominated for: Young Australian of the Year, Senior Australian of the Year, Australian of the Year and Australia’s Local Hero.
‘‘These awards have become a significant part of the Australia Day celebrations and give exceptional Australians the opportunity to be recognised for some of the great achievements in the past years or even in their lifetime,’’ Federal Member for Murray Sharman Stone said.
‘‘I encourage people in Murray to nominate an outstanding citizen who deserves to be recognised for some of their great achievements nationally or locally,’’ Dr Stone said.
