We would like to thank the Office for Women for their strategic partnership with ADCSA in jointly co-ordinating this Award that recognises an outstanding woman who has made a significant contribution to the community.
We would like to thank the Minister for Education through the Multicultural Education and Languages Committee (MELC) in jointly administering this Award that recognises outstanding young people who have demonstrated leadership and commitment to advocacy for a multilingual and culturally diverse Australia.
We would like to thank all our valued member SA Councils for participation in the The Citizen of the Year Awards Program that recognises South Australians who enable their communities to be stronger as a result of their tireless efforts. These individuals offer outstanding service each day and so often this is invisible to us.
