Citizen of the Year Awards
Do you know someone who makes your community a better place?
The Citizen of the Year Awards are proudly presented by the Australia Day Council of South Australia, sponsored by San Remo, and administered by local Councils.
The Awards reward and recognise individuals and organisations that have made a noteworthy contribution during the current year, and/or given an outstanding service over a number of years, to a local community over and above normal employment duties.
Outstanding contribution and community service includes areas such as education, health, fundraising, charitable and voluntary services, business, sport, arts, the environment, or any other area that contributes to the advancement and well being of a community.
Nominate someone who makes a real difference in your community and give them the opportunity to be rewarded and recognised for their important contribution.
