Every year, Council calls for nominations for the Manningham Citizen and Young Citizen of the Year awards. These awards are presented on Australia Day 26 January each year to local residents who have made an outstanding contribution to the community. 

The Awards are provided by the Australia Day Committee (Victoria) and are administered by local government authorities throughout Victoria on behalf of the Committee.

Any field of endeavour/performance may be recognised by the awards. This includes, but is not limited to, contributions in fields such as community service, environment, sports, arts and education.
