Who makes your community a better place?

The Awards acknowledge the unsung heroes of our community who through their contributions make the Adelaide Hills a better place.
Nominated by their peers, these people offer outstanding service each day and enable our communities to be stronger as a result of their tireless efforts. They are often our unsung heroes, so we want to hear their stories and celebrate them!
