Local Citizen of the Year Awards


Each year on Australia Day the Council recognise the outstanding work of the local community’s unsung heroes at the Local Citizen of the Year Awards.

These awards honour individuals and organisations who generously donate their time and effort to help others and improve the Ku-ring-gai Community. The Local Citizen of the Year Awards aim to recognise Ku-ring-gai residents who have demonstrated excellent citizenship and a contribution to the people of Ku-ring-gai or the wider community.
