Do you know someone who makes an extraordinary contribution to their community, and beyond?

The Australia Day Council of South Australia continues to shine a light on people who do extraordinary things, and is looking for the next recipients of its Citizen of the Year Awards.

Individuals, organisations, groups or events that have made an outstanding contribution to their communities can be nominated in one of four categories for the 2021 awards.

The categories are:

  • Citizen of the Year Award - To be eligible, the person must be an Australian citizen.
  • Young Citizen of the Year Award - To be eligible, the person must be an Australian citizen aged over 16 years and under 30 years of age on January 26, 2020.
  • Community Event of the Year Award - This is presented to the person/group who has staged the most outstanding community event during the past year.
  • Award for Active Citizenship - A person or group delivering outstanding work or for an event or cause, staged in the community during the past year.

Contributions from nominees can come from areas such as education, health, fundraising, charitable and voluntary services, business, sport, arts, the environment, or any other area that contributes to the advancement and well-being of a community.

Making a nomination is easy - there are only three easy questions to answer to make a submission.

Nominations close on Friday, November 20.
