The honour was bestowed upon The Wiggles by the University in recognition of their outstanding contribution to early-years education and child development through the arts. "Red" Wiggle, Murray Cook, provided the occasional address at the ceremony.

Speaking about the Wiggles' achievements, ACU Vice-Chancellor, Professor Peter Sheehan AO said,
"The Wiggles have provided challenging and highly stimulating education and great enjoyment to our children in their early years. Drawing on their natural talents and energies, this group has used its knowledge of early childhood education, the value of the preciousness of individuals and their keen interest in music and art to bring joy, humanity and great happiness to the young children of Australia, the United States of America, Great Britain, China and New Zealand."
