2016 Mayoral Awards
The recipients of the 2016 Mayoral Awards were announced by Mayor Ryan yesterday, December 5 2016, following on from ‘International Day of People with a Disability' on Friday 2 December 2016.
The Mayoral Awards highlight the contributions made by individuals with disability and by individuals for disability communities. The aim of the Alice Springs Mayoral Awards is to highlight, acknowledge and give thanks to the people in the community who ‘make a difference’ – demonstrated either in their own lives or through their actions and commitment to others. The 2016 Mayoral Awards included three awards: the Noteworthy Award, the Champion Award, and the inaugural Michele Castagna Medal. This year’s guest speaker was Guest Speaker Katrina Webb OAM, Paralympian & motivational speaker.
