Nominations open for the 2014 South Taranaki Community Awards

Wednesday, July 02, 2014

Know of a quiet achiever? Impressed by the community initiative shown by a neighbour? Does the dedication of a volunteer amaze you? Stunned by a successful student?
Get your thinking caps on because nominations are now open for the 2014 South Taranaki Community Awards – and we want to hear from you!
These awards only happen once every two years, so take this opportunity to nominate an individual or a group deserving recognition for going beyond the call of duty from within the district.
These awards are for individuals, groups and organisations within South Taranaki who have, by personal leadership, inspiration, sacrifice or devotion, made a significant contribution to the wellbeing of their communities.
“You could nominate individuals or groups who have shown initiative to make a difference in the community, or have dedicated their time assisting others such as a sports coach or community volunteer or beautifying a public place for example,” says co-ordinator Michelle Commerer.
The categories are:
• Volunteer – individual
• Volunteer – organisation
Nominations are open until Wednesday 6 August.

Nomination forms are available from any LibraryPlus centre, the Council Administration building in Hawera, South Taranaki i-SITE Visitors Centre or by clicking here. If you’d like to know more, please phone Michelle on 0800 111 323
