Each year the Council holds a public nominations process for Civic Awards for voluntary service. The 2021 nominations closed on 3 May 2021 and the successful recipients were recognised at Pātaka on 21 June.
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.
Here is the link to the news release on the 2021 winners: https://poriruacity.govt.nz/your-council/news/outstanding-volunteers-receive-porirua-civic-awards/
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.
PLEASE COME BACK HERE EARLY IN 2022 FOR THAT YEAR'S AWARDS RUN-DOWN.
