PEOPLE wanting to nominate a child for the Kids in Community awards now have more time with the nomination period extended until July 24.

The awards recognise the contribution that kids make to the community, which can often be overlooked.

Kids in Community committee member Gaye Breen said the nomination period was extended because of problems with the nomination process that have since been fixed.

"When we launched this year's awards we were having problems with the website," Ms Breen said.

"This is also the school holiday period so we thought it better to extend the nomination period."

Ms Breen said more nominations were needed for the adults supporting youth and protecting our planet categories.

"Kids can nominate for the adults supporting youth award," she said.

"They can nominate a teacher or a surf life saving coach… anyone who puts the effort in to help kids."

Michelle Brown nominated her daughter Mikayla last year for her work with the Cancer Council, Camp Quality, Daffodil Day and the Mater Hospital.

"My son Dylan had cancer from birth," Ms Brown said.

"That's how Mikayla got involved with the charity groups."

Mikayla said she was "proud" to have been nominated.
