Australia Day Awards 2023

Nominations now open!

Each year Ararat Rural City Council presents awards to local citizens and community groups that have made an outstanding contribution to the community. The awards not only recognise the contribution within the community but the ongoing commitment undertaken by all individuals for the benefit of the community.

It is an opportunity to honour individuals or groups who continued to make a difference to the Ararat Rural City community in the past year.

The 2023 Australia Day Awards will be presented at the annual Australia Day celebration on 26th January 2023 at Alexandra Oval Community Centre, Waratah Avenue, Ararat. More details on this event will be released closer to the date.

The four awards presented will be Citizen of the Year 2022, Community Project of the Year 2022, Young Citizen of the Year 2022, and Volunteer of the Year 2022. Please see the criteria for each category below.
 

Nomination forms must be returned by 5pm Wednesday 18 January 2023.
