Selection for the Australian of the Year Awards 2008 is now well under way
State and Territory selection for the Australian of the Year Awards 2008 is now well under way.
"There was an amazing field of nominations received this year made by friends, relatives, neighbours or people who are grateful for the work of others. It has been a difficult task to select a few outstanding community members to become finalists in each state and territory," said Lisa Curry Kenny, Chair of the National Australia Day Council.
State and Territory finalists will be announced on this website in late October, with recipients announced at prestigious events in each state during 15 - 30 November. The Australian of the Year, Senior Australian of the Year, Young Australian of the Year and Australia's Local Hero 2008 will be announced in Canberra on 25 January 2008.
Congratulations certificates will be posted to all nominees following the final state presentation event in December.
