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.

Nominations for 2019 Civic Awards

Do you know a great community volunteer? Each year the Council holds a public nominations process for Civic Awards for voluntary service. The 2019 nominations closed on 23 April and the successful recipients will be announced in June 2019.

The Civic Awards are the city’s highest honour to recognise citizens, who by their personal leadership, inspiration, sacrifice or devotion to a cause, have made a significant contribution to the community well-being of Porirua City.

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 later in the year.

If you know someone who fits the bill then please keep in mind our nominations process opening in March next year. Here is our 2019 Guide to give you an idea about the type of information we look for. 

If you have any queries, please contact enquiries@poriruacity.govt.nz or phone (04) 237 5089.
