Mayoral Awards

The Alice Springs Mayoral Awards are celebrated in line with the International Day of People with a Disability (IDPwD) to highlight the contributions made by individuals with disability and by individuals for disability communities.
The aim of the Alice Springs Mayoral Awards is to highlight, acknowledge and give thanks to the people in the community who ‘make a difference’ – demonstrated either in their own lives or through their actions and commitment to others.
