This year has been a year unlike any other and Council wants to recognise local people who have supported their neighbours and communities during this difficult time. The challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic have highlighted the valuable contributions of those who, every day, help to make Golden Plains Shire a wonderful place to call home.

The 2020 Awards will be presented to three individuals: Citizen of the Year, Senior Citizen of the Year, and Young Citizen of the Year. In addition, the Community Impact Award recognises the valuable contribution of a community event, project, group or team.
