Civic Awards

Adelaide Hills Council has always valued the passion and commitment of its community and has for many years acknowledged this through the presentation of annual awards.​

Award recipients are nominated by their peers for the positive impact they've had on their local community, going above-and-beyond in times of need, and being an inspirational representative of the Adelaide Hills.

Citizen of the Year Award nominations for 2020 are now open.
Nominations have been extended for one week and MUST close on 24 November 2019.

Nominate online at or download a hard copy form (also available at our libraries and community centres).

Adelaide Hills Council presents a number of awards at events across the region annually on Australia Day, 26 January. The award categories are Citizen of the Year, Young Citizen of the Year (16-30yrs), Community Event of the Year, and Civic Awards (multiple).

The community can celebrate award recipients at one of the Australia Day events in the region. Details about these events will be updated as 26 January 2020 approaches.
