Inspirational senior Australians

3 August 2006

Look around your family, friends, colleagues and in your community - how many older Australians do you see making a great contribution to our nation? Everyday there are older people making communities all around Australia stronger through their efforts in fields ranging from community service and charitable work, to education, business, the arts, sport and beyond.

The Senior Australian of the Year Award recognises not only the significant contributions that senior Australians have made over the course of their life, but also their continuing work and achievements.

I encourage you to complete a nomination form and tell the story of an inspirational senior Australian you know.
