Nominations are now open for the 2018 Australia Day Awards

Each year council recognises the outstanding achievements of community members and organisations that motivate and inspire others through their vision, leadership, talent, humility and spirit of community service.

Help us to award and recognise the individuals or community groups that you believe make the Adelaide Plains Council a great place to live and work.

Being nominated for an Australia Day Award is a great honour, and is a wonderful opportunity to pay tribute to someone who makes you proud to be an Australian.

Presented annually at the Australia Day breakfast, the Awards are open to individuals and organisations that have made a noteworthy contribution to the community on a voluntary basis or have given an outstanding contribution exceeding their normal employment duties during the current year, and/or an outstanding service to a local community over a number of years.
