Each local Council in South Australia seek nominations in their local Council area, with the award recipients typically announced at the Council’s Australia Day celebrations.

All nominations will be assessed by Council’s Civic Recognition Working Group. Members include the Lord Mayor, Deputy Lord Mayor, Councillors, and the Chief Executive Officer. Once the Working Group has made its decision, nominees will be contacted regarding the outcome and to discuss the arrangements for the Award conferring ceremony.
