Let's appreciate our local champions.

If you know an individual or community group that has gone above and beyond in giving back to your community, why not take the opportunity to support them with the recognition they deserve by nominating them for the Moira Shire Council Australia Day Awards.

If your community champion is a model citizen, an active community group, an amazing organisation running a fantastic event or project, a young champion in their own field or someone who is always helping out your in whatever way they can to the community, then we want to recognize them.
