Civic Awards

Volunteers make up the heart of our community. We’re pleased to recognise volunteers’ efforts and encourage them to keep up the good work achieving many positive outcomes for Porirua City.

Make a nomination

You can help us recognise people who’ve done great things for the Porirua community.

The Civic Awards are the city’s highest honour for residents who’ve made a big impact in Porirua. Based on public nominations, a small number of awards are given by the Council each year – particularly for outstanding voluntary service.

Voluntary activities could be in areas like the environment, social services, education, youth or culture, or for contributing to the city’s development and putting Porirua City on the map. Sporting achievements aren’t included as these are covered by the Porirua Sports Awards later in the year.

Nominations for next Civic Awards will open early in the new year.  Keep an eye out for our announcements on Facebook and this webpage.

If you'd like to discuss any aspects of our Civic Awards, please get in touch with Customer Services on email enquiries@poriruacity.govt.nz or phone us on (04) 237 5089.
