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 (under 30yrs), Community Event of the Year, and Civic Awards (multiple).
Nominations for 2023 open on 1 October 2022
