Relevant: Christmas Island

Date: 8 January 2019

One of the things I love so much about the Cocos (Keeling) Islands is the enormous community spirit we have.

I am incredibly proud of the significant number of amazing people who do so much in terms of volunteering their time for the benefit of others.

Unfortunately I won"t be able to attend the Australia Day festivities on Cocos (Keeling) Islands (CKI) this year. However I still want to recognise the quiet achievers in our community through my annual award program, which I plan to present the recipients their awards in February when I am next back on Cocos (Keeling) Islands.

I am seeking your help to nominate those special people.

Please email your nomination to me at Your nomination should state in 500 words or less why this person or organisation should receive an Administrator’s Award and the category or categories the nomination is for.

Categories include:

  • CKI Community Citizen 2018 - Senior
  • CKI Community Citizen 2018 - Youth
  • CKI Community Citizen 2018
  • CKI Volunteer of the Year
  • CKI Bravery Award
  • CKI Administrator’s special recognition

Nominations should be received by close of business, 21 January 2019.
