Mayor of Cowra, Cr Bill West was astounded at the calibre, quantity and diversity of the Australia Day 2016 Award nominations.
This year's winners were annouced today at the Australia Day Awards presentation at the Cowra Civic Centre and received their certificates from Cowra's 2016 Australia Day Ambassador, entertainer, Deni Hines.
"With such a large number of outstanding people to choose from, I applaud the judging panel in making their choices. It would have been an extremely difficult decision knowing the significant contributions of the nominees to our community," Cr West said.
While congratulating the winners, Cr West also commended all award nominees, "who in many cases, are the quiet achievers. The people that go about their business without fuss or fanfare, donating their time to help others without expectation."
And the winners are:
