The Pittsworth Local Australia Day Committee (LADC) in conjunction with the Toowoomba Regional Council and the Australia Day Council Queensland Inc. will be recognising outstanding contributions to the local community as part of the 2020 Australia Day Celebrations.

Local nominations that are eligible for the Regional Awards will also be put forward to the Regional Australia Day Awards Selection Panel for their consideration.
All award winners will be announced at the Pittsworth Australia Day Celebration on the 26th January 2020.
I would cordially invite your organisation to nominate worthy and meritorious events and members of the community for one or more of these awards.
It is often the case that people who make significant contributions to the community receive little or no recognition for their efforts. These awards provide an opportunity for the community to say “Thank you and well done!” I would therefore urge you to seriously consider submitting suitable nominations.
Nominations can be made on-line through the Toowoomba Regional Council website www.toowoombarc.qld.gov.au<http://www.toowoombarc.qld.gov.au
In addition, nomination forms are available at Council’s Customer Service Centre across the region, or can be requested by calling 131 872 during office hours. Nominations should be marked “Private and Confidential” and will close Thursday 31st October, 2019.
