Student Citizenship Awards


ACT students and schools have the opportunity to be nominated for awards for voluntary community service and demonstration of good citizenship.

The awards are made by The Order of Australia Association (ACT Branch) on the recommendation of an independent selection panel.

There are two types of award:

  • Awards for outstanding individual leadership and achievement by year 11 and 12 students or those in a gap year.
  • Awards for meritorious group activity in community service and citizenship projects for students between kindergarten and year 10.

Certificates of Commendation may also be awarded.

Individual awards are marked by an engraved medallion and a certificate.

The recipient schools receive an engraved plaque to signify the group awards.

Nominations are called from principals of schools and colleges by the last day of term 3.

Awards are given at a special presentation ceremony in November in each year.

Please feel free to download our Student Awards Brochure and distribute it to colleagues, family and friends.
