Nominations for the Australia Day Awards 2020 are now open

It’s time to recognise the outstanding achievements of our local champions through the City of Playford’s Australia Day Awards.

The awards acknowledge the valued work and commitment of community members who give their time generously to help others and make a significant contribution to the city.

The Australia Day Awards are an opportunity to recognise an inspirational role model, group or initiative and sporting club of the Playford community.

Being recognised for an Australia Day Award is a great honour, paying tribute to someone who makes you proud to be Australian.

Nominations close on Sunday 17 November so be sure to nominate your local achiever today.

The winners will be announced at our Australia Day celebrations at Fremont Park on Sunday 26 January, 2020.
