City of Wanneroo mayor encourages nominations for Human Spirit Award

NOMINATIONS are open for a state award recognising road safety proponents.

The City of Wanneroo is calling for local nominations in the Human Spirit Award run by the WA Local Government Association’s RoadWise Program.

Wanneroo Mayor Tracey Roberts said the awards acknowledged people working towards saving lives and reducing road trauma.

“The Human Spirit Awards are highly regarded and recognise the important work of our road safety-conscious community members, and how highly they are valued,” she said.

“School crossing attendants, parents involved in school road safety schemes, local police officers, cycling groups are all shining examples of people who are eligible for nomination.

“Road safety is the responsibility of everybody and by highlighting the positive contribution of these community members, I hope others will be encouraged to help create safer roads for everyone.”

Award winners will be honoured by the City at its annual blessing of the roads ceremony on April 3.

A nomination form is at www.wanneroo.wa.gov.au and submissions close on March 17.
