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.

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).

Nominations for 2021 are now open!
