Who’s your local hero?

The Playford Alive Local Hero Awards are back for 2019 with award submissions open from 1 June, and now is your chance to nominate a standout member of the community – from individuals to businesses, training providers and community organisations.

Playford Alive is a community and urban renewal project comprising new developments in Munno Para, Andrews Farm and Eyre, as well as the existing suburbs of Smithfield Plains and Davoren Park.  Awards are open to individuals and organisations making a difference in the community that live or work within Playford Alive.


There are five categories of hero you can nominate:

Positive Playford Award. Sponsored by Lighthouse Disability.

Positive Playford Award – Youth. Sponsored by Boral.
