Abstract
The Children’s Environment and Health Local Government Report Card Project originated following the Environment and Health Advocacy Forum – an event organised by the Public Health Advocacy Institute of Western Australia (PHAIWA) in March 2009. The Environment and Health Advocacy Committee was formed following the Forum and has 22 members from across Western Australia. One of the Committee’s first duties was to prioritise the advocacy consensus targets developed from the Forum. The area of children’s environment and health was allocated the highest priority. 
 
15 Metropolitan and 11 Regional Local Governments participated in the 6th edition of the project an increase of 6 from the previous year. 
 
The City of Cockburn was awarded with The Best in WA also winning  Climate Change, Promoting Healthy Behaviours and Shade in Public Places  and receiving a commendable mention for the Children’s Consultation category. 
 
The regional award was presented to the Shire of Collie for the second year running along with winning the Road and Active Transport and Planning Healthy Communities categories.
