Outstanding citizen

Do you know someone living in Bass Coast who regularly goes above and beyond, you can always rely on for help, or you admire their contribution to the community? Perhaps you know someone who has contributed to the safety, wellbeing and connectedness of their community?

These Awards allow us to recognise our local heroes for all they do.

  • Nominating your local hero is easy and only takes a few minutes
  • Nominations close on Thursday, 25 November 2021 and the finalists and winners will be announced on Wednesday, 19 January 2022

Bass Coast Shire Mayor, Cr Brett Tessari, said that there are people out there in the community who go out of their way to help others in need, without expecting or wanting any recognition for all they do to make Bass Coast a wonderful place to live.

Supporting and making each other better

Cr Brett Tessari said, "These awards highlight the amazing contributions of these often unsung heroes, to support each other and help make life better for our community. Taking the time to nominate someone for the Awards can help these amazing people see how much we appreciate their contribution to our community."

"So if you have someone in mind, take a little time out of your day to fill out the nomination form by answering a few simple questions. We cant recognise the fabulous work that is happening right across the Shire without your nomination," Cr Tessari concluded.

All nominees should:

  • Have made significant contributions to the Bass Coast community
  • Have acted above and beyond the scope of their regular employment or duties
