Australia Day Awards

Nominations for the 2018 Hume City Council Australia Day Awards are now open.

On Australia Day Hume residents come together to welcome new citizens to our city. We also recognise the many people in our community who take time out of their busy lives to help and inspire others.

Hume City Council has a proud tradition of publicly recognising outstanding contributions made to the Hume community through the presentation of the Australia Day Awards. 

Awards are presented in the following categories:

  • Hume Citizen of the Year
  • Hume Young Citizen of the Year
  • Hume Community Event of the Year (Eligible for any community group or individual who organised and ran a community event within the Hume municipality between 22 December 2016 and 18 December 2017).

You are invited to nominate a person who is a resident of the Hume municipality, or an event that was held in the Hume municipality, for recognition through the presentation of an award.
