PAGE MP Janelle Saffin says people in Page can shine a light on local people whose achievements or contributions they admire by nominating them for an Australian of the Year Award.

"The next Australians of the Year could be people living in our area. In fact a great Australian and a former local boy, Adam Gilchrist, is the Chair of the National Australia Day Council that coordinates these awards.

"I encourage people to consider the exceptional people in our community, the people who inspire and motivate us, and show them that we appreciate and admire them.

"I know that we have people in Page who fit the bill.  Let's tell the rest of Australia about them."

"Anyone can submit a nomination and have a say in who should be honoured."

"People can be nominated for awards in one of the following categories:

• Australian of the Year
• Senior Australian of the Year (those aged 60 years or over)
• Young Australian of the Year (ages 16 to 30)
• Australia's Local Hero

Ms Saffin said it is an opportunity for local figures to join the likes of last year's winners: Geoffrey Rush (Australian of the Year), Laurie Baymarrwangga (Senior Australian of the Year), Marita Cheng (Young Australian of the Year) and Lynne Sawyers (Australia's Local Hero).

Nominations close on 31 August 2012.

For more information on the Australian of the Year Awards or to submit a nomination, go to www.australianoftheyear.org.au, call 1300 655 193 or contact Janelle Saffin's office on 66219909.

Nomination forms are also available from any Commonwealth Bank branch
