South Taranaki Community Awards

South Taranaki Community Awards

Know of a quiet achiever? Impressed by the community initiative shown by a neighbour? Does the dedication of a volunteer impress you?

Get your thinking caps on because nominations are open for the 2016 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 you think deserve recognition for the work they do 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 10 August 2016.

Nomination forms are available here and from any LibraryPlus centre, the Council Administration building in Hawera and South Taranaki i-SITE Visitors Centre.
