The awards honour local governments for their efforts in making a difference in their communities, by showcasing innovative solutions that demonstrate leading practices, deliver quality services and better outcomes for communities, and have the potential to be replicated across the country.
Here in Tasmania, the awards program has been designed to support the national awards. The Tasmanian winners will be recognised in front of their industry peers at an awards ceremony in June. The state winners will be entered into the national competition.
The national awards will be presented at the 2021 Awards Dinner in Canberra in August 2021 where the winners will receive a trophy for their council and individual certificates for all team members.
All national category winners will be celebrated in the wider local government sector after the ceremony in an awards publication circulated industry-wide.
Winners will have the opportunity to self-promote through a publicity program with LG Professionals Australia which may include presenting at associated events.
