Nominate now for a Lake Mac Award

It’s time to give the City’s sporting greats, accomplished artists, environmental leaders, and volunteers recognition for their achievements and making a positive difference to our community, by nominating them for a 2020 Lake Macquarie City Award. 

Lake Macquarie Mayor Cr Kay Fraser said the awards celebrate the people and groups that show the City is made up of a creative, active and inclusive community.

“A Lake Mac Award is the highest honour we can give to people who live in Lake Macquarie City,” Cr Fraser said. 

“There are thousands of people in our City who inspire us through their achievements and contribution to life in Lake Mac.

“It’s important to give these people recognition because they challenge us to think about how we can excel in our endeavours or make our own contribution to creating a better and more caring society.”
