Time to vote for the 2020 Eurobodalla local hero

Closes 4pm Friday 1 May Each year the Eurobodalla community are asked to nominate a local hero. Somebody who makes a difference. Someone who steps up and does something in the community that adds to the richness that we might enjoy or benefit from. We have so many volunteers, so many active groups, and behind all of those are the quiet achievers who keep the momentum going. The Eurobodalla’s Local Hero Award is in place to shine a light on members of our community, either for their volunteer contributions or their outstanding achievements, those Eurobodallans who go above and beyond.

Here is your chance to say thank you. Nominate your local hero and ensure their efforts are seen.The finalists and winner will be announced in May.

Nominees must be Eurobodalla residents. Nomination forms are available on Council’s website and nominations close 4pm Friday 1 May. A selection panel will choose three finalists from the nominations received. The selection panel will be made up of three people including the Mayor.

Winners will be announced on Wednesday 20 May 2020. Eligibility
