Citizen of the Year Awards
The Citizen of the Year Awards celebrate the achievements and contributions made by outstanding members of our community.
The Citizen of the Year Awards are presented by the City of Norwood Payneham & St Peters in conjunction with the Australia Day Council of SA.
The Awards reward and recognise individuals and organisations that have made a noteworthy contribution during the current year, and/or given an outstanding service over a number of years, to a local community over and above normal employment duties.
Outstanding contribution and community service includes 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.
The Awards will be presented at the City of Norwood Payneham & St Peters Australia Day Celebrations on January 26.
