Each year Council recognises the outstanding achievements of community members and organisations that motivate and inspire others through their vision, leadership, talent, humility and spirit of community service.

Help us to award and recognise the individuals or community groups that you believe make the Adelaide Plains Council (APC) a great place to live and work.

Being nominated for an Australia Day Award is a great honour, and is a wonderful opportunity to pay tribute to someone who makes you proud to be an Australian.
