Project updates

The contributions everyday people have made in Knox, makes our community great. Share your thoughts on our community awards program, and the best way we can honour community achievements.

This review will help us ensure that our community awards program is valued by participants and the broader community.

Recognition of outstanding citizens is a way for our community to value and appreciate those that make a positive difference in Knox. It also honours the important volunteer work they do in all corners of our community, in areas such as environment preservation, supporting those in need, and helping important causes.

Since 1994, we have been recognising community achievements with the Knox Australia Day Awards.

This is your chance to share feedback on Council’s role in recognising community achievements, and how we can give amazing people the recognition they deserve.

Feedback closes on Wednesday 21 June 2023.

To share your feedback, you can either:

  • Attend a drop-in session at Knox Civic Centre on Monday 19 June, 5pm to 6pm
  • Complete the online survey
