Citizen of the Year 2019 Poster

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.

Presented each year at the Australia Day breakfast, the awards are open to individuals and organisations that have made a noteworthy contribution to the community on a voluntary basis or have given an outstanding contribution exceeding their normal employment duties during the current year, and/or an outstanding service to a local community over a number of years.

The Australia Day Awards are open to all residents of Adelaide Plains Council. Contributions made to the community from non residents will be considered and persons or groups previously nominated but not having received an award can be renominated.

The 2019 Australia Day Awards are now open for nominations.  The Australia Day Council Award Categories are:

  • Young Citizen of the Year

Presented to the most outstanding Young Citizen for the Adelaide Plains Council region

  • Citizen of the Year
