On Australia Day we come together as a nation to celebrate what’s great about Australia and being Australian. It’s the day to reflect on what we have achieved and what we can be proud of in our great nation. It’s the day for us to re-commit to making Australia an even better place for the future.
Congratulations to the 2020 Australia Day award winners:
Shire of Collie Environmental Award – Allanson Primary School

Sporting Scholarship Request Form
Assistance can be provided as a sporting scholarship of $250 for an individual or up to $500 where 3 or more residents are selected in a Western Australian State or Australian National representative team.
Due to the global pandemic, the Shire of Collie Sports Award Panel have postponed this year’s award ceremony until November 2021. However, we invite submissions for the 2019/2020 period from those clubs and members of the community that managed to complete seasons or compete during this time. The submissions will be assessed on their merits, but not announced or awarded until the next awards ceremony. The Shire of Collie Sports Award Panel reserves the right to vary the time period over which an award can be considered.
This means that in November 2021 more than one award may be presented in each category.
