Annual Awards

Annual awards are just one way that Council celebrates the passion and commitment of our community and the positive impact people make — going above-and-beyond in times of need and being inspirational representatives for the Adelaide Hills.

Citizen of the year awards 2022 crowd image

Adelaide Hills Council values 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 (under 30yrs), Community Event of the Year, and Civic Awards (multiple).
