The Griffith Australia Day Awards recognise volunteers who perform extraordinary or outstanding voluntary work in the Griffith electorate. The former Member for Griffith, the Hon Kevin Rudd AC, established these awards in 2000. You can find the full list of recipients below.
The current Member, Terri Butler MP, has continued the tradition while in office. For over twenty years, outstanding local volunteers have been honoured with these awards. The recipients are selected by a committee of eminent locals, and conferred by Terri Butler MP.
