Member for Wannon, Dan Tehan, is calling for nominations for the 2017 Australian Government Sports Awards, to be held in Beaufort this year.

The Australian Government Sports Awards recognise outstanding sporting performances, achievements, and contributions by community members.

The Australian Government Sports Awards cover individual or team achievements, community sports contributions by individuals and contributions to sports by schools, community groups or media organisations.

“I would welcome any nominations for an Award, and people can submit nominations to my office,” Mr. Tehan said.

“These awards assist in promoting the benefits of participating in sports in our local community, whether as a competitor, coach, umpire or administrator and I urge people to nominate someone they feel is worthy of this recognition,” Mr. Tehan said.

“To nominate a person, team or group, please include your contact details, along with the name, address, age and contact telephone numbers for each nominee; a brief overview of their contribution and the category for their award.

Nominations should reach my Warrnambool electorate office at 73 Kepler Street, Warrnambool 3280 by Friday 13th October 2017.
