The Council is calling again for nominations for the city’s highest honour!

These volunteers would have spent many years giving up their time to make a difference - sometimes behind the scenes.

Possible nominees would likely have spent many years giving up their time to make a difference, sometimes behind the scenes, and we’d love to hear about them. Categories for consideration include those who have given their time making a difference in areas like the environment, social services, education, youth and culture. 

Sporting achievements aren’t included as these are covered by the Porirua Sports Awards.

If you know someone who fits the bill then please nominate them now!

Here is our 2024 Guide to give you an idea about the type of information we look for.
