The Northern Areas Council's Young Citizen of the Year has been riding on the sheep's back.

Molly Noonan, of Jamestown, has been a key member of the Jamestown Show Committee as well as several other organisations.

She played a major role in the re-invigoration of the show, particularly the wool and sheep section, for which the event is known.

Molly served as the secretary of this division of the show while coordinating the hogget competition and being an executive member of the committee. This kept her busy in the past year with the committee completing the Heiniger Shearer training centre in time for the 2019 show, as well as already hosting shearer training sessions.

Molly is well known in sporting circles as a player and junior netball coach at the Jamestown Peterborough Football and Netball Club.

She is a canteen coordinator, social committee member and is one of the first people to arrive at any working bee - and one of the last to leave.

She is the junior scores recorder for Northern Areas Netball Association.

The Community Event of the Year is the Jamestown Show because of its highly-successful 2019 event.

This show featured the opening of the Heiniger Shearer Training Centre. The enthusiastic vision of the committee to reinvigorate the show has seen the event grow significantly, since it reverted to a two-day program in recent years.

The Australia Day Awards recipients will be recognised at an Australia Day Breakfast at Georgetown.
