Who shall we put up for Australian of the Year?

By johnboy 13 August 2008 24

Chief Minister Stanhope is calling for nominations from the ACT for the 2009 Australian of the Year awards.

    “I urge all Canberrans to consider nominating someone who may have achieved excellence in their chosen field, made a significant contribution to the local or Australian community, or acted as an inspirational role model to others.”

Categories are:

— Australian of the Year
— Senior Australian of the Year
— Young Australian of the Year
— Australia’s Local Hero

    “Nominations can be made online at, by picking up a nomination form at any Commonwealth Bank branch or by phoning 1300 655 193.”

But before doing that, why not let us know who you’re nominating?

What’s Your opinion?

John McLean sounds like a very deserving Australian indeed. I will vote for him … especially now I have discovered that Thumper is really a Disney rabbit impersonator!

I think the Bruce Willis guy is spelled McClane (weird).

John Mclean was a Queensland and Australian wicketkeeper of the late 70s.

Seriously 😉
