Australia Day Awards
As Hume joins together to welcome new citizens on Australia Day, we also recognise the many people in our community who take time out of their busy lives to help and inspire others. Each year we honour our outstanding citizens with the annual, community-nominated Hume Australia Day Awards.
Awards are presented in the following categories:
- Hume Citizen of the Year
- Hume Young Citizen of the Year
- Community Event of the Year: Open to any community group or individual who organised and ran an outstanding community event within the Hume municipality, that has encouraged community participation and social cohesion.
