Australia Day Awards: Citizen of the Year
The Citizen of the Year Award is predominately run by local governments across Australia. Broadly, it is a program rewarding community service at a local level and is administered through a nomination program, which is assessed by a local selection committee and/or Councillors. Awards in the form or certificates and prizes are awarded at official Australia Day functions.
Award categories may include: Citizen of the Year, Sportsperson of the Year, Senior Citizen of the Year and Student of the Year – this is determined by the administering local government organisation.
Australia Day Awards are coordinated by the Australia Day Council of Western Australia.
