The Unsung Hero Awards of South Australian Science are a joint initiative of National Science Week SA and the Australian Science Communicators SA (ASCSA), and are administered by National Science Week SA.

For many years, there was only one award, but the winner was often somebody who was as notable for science communication as for science. Two awards are now offered: one for science and research endeavours, and one for science communication. They are collectively known as the Unsung Hero Awards of South Australian Science.

Nominations are now open and close at 5pm on Friday 31 May 2019.
