“The Civic Awards go to people who have carried out outstanding or innovative voluntary service to others in the community,” Palmerston North Mayor Grant Smith says.
“I know there are many people in our city who have selflessly given up their time to help and support others. It’s these people who make our city such a great place to live and they often do it, under the radar. We can’t celebrate and honour them unless we get nominations.”
Nominations close on 31 August and the awards will be presented at the Palmerston North Conference and Function Centre on 30 October.
Anyone is welcome to nominate anyone they think deserves this honour.
Nomination forms can be collected from the Council's Customer Service Centre, libraries or on the Palmerston North City Council website.
Civic Award nomination criteria:
- The service carried out by the nominated person must not be a professional service or a service they undertake in the course of their paid employment
- The awards are open for volunteers of any age, and citizens can be nominated for the quality of their commitment or the length of their service
- If anyone has unsuccessfully put forward a person in previous years, they are welcome to re-submit their nomination
