Nomination Criteria

Citizen of the Year Awards 2020

The Inner West Council Citizen of the Year, Senior Citizen of the Year and Young Citizen of the Year Awards aim to recognise outstanding contributions from individuals within the Inner West Council community. One award is offered in each category and awarded in recognition of people who have provided outstanding service for the welfare of the general community.

The 2020 Citizen of the Year Awards will be held alongside the Amy Large Volunteer Awards. A joint ceremony will be held during National Volunteer Week, 18-24 May 2020 at Ashfield Town Hall.

  • must be 26 or over on 26 January 2020 to be considered for the Citizen of the Year Award;

  • cannot be considered for a second award in a category in which they have already received an award in a previous year; however future recognition is possible in one of the other two available awards.  For example, a person who has previously been awarded a Young Citizen of the Year award would be eligible for consideration under the Citizen of the Year or Senior Citizen of the Year categories in a following year.

Council reserves the right to withdraw an award if further information or the recipient's conduct draws the local Citizen of the Year Awards into disrepute.

Awards will not be granted posthumously.


Judging Criteria

The nominee must have contributed significantly to their community in any field. The contribution will demonstrate an active concern for the rights, welfare, well being and/or the advancement of others. Such a contribution could have been made to the general community, community groups, or individuals within the community.
