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.
Palmy is enhanced by people doing more than their share of community service. Know someone who deserves to be honoured this year? Nominate them by Monday 15 August.
