Civic Awards

The annual Civic Awards are the city's highest recognition for voluntary service, honouring those who give up their time to ensure community groups and organisations tick.

Awards recipients have all made extraordinary contributions to the city. We honour them for their service to Palmerston North and its people. 

Since the awards were introduced in 1988, 155 people have received this honour.
