    Awards Overview 

    The Australian Water Association (AWA) offers a range of awards at both state and national levels and plays an important role in promoting excellence and the contribution our members make to the community. AWA’s Australian Water Awards not only seek to recognise and reward outstanding achievement of individuals and organisations in the water sector, but also to identify those who have displayed conspicuous service to the profession and exceptional performance in the practice of water management. 



    All Awards, aside from the Student awards, are open to AWA members only. Conditions of entry for the AWA Awards Program can be viewed here
