Nominations for Clutha Community Awards extended
National Volunteer Week celebrates the collective contribution of the 1.2 million volunteers who enrich Aotearoa New Zealand.
To celebrate National Volunteer Week, nominations for the Clutha District Council 2021 Community Service Awards have been extended to 30 June.
Mayor Bryan Cadogan said our communities, and families, thrive thanks to the involvement and energy of volunteers and the Clutha District Community Service Awards was a honourable way to recognise these very special people and groups.
“I don’t believe, with all the magnificent volunteers that we have doing such great work in our communities, that there is not a heap of nominations coming in.
“I implore you to nominate those you know who are doing great work and I hope volunteer week activates people to enter nominations,” Mayor Cadogan said.
The awards are in three categories:
- Individual awards – in which people can nominate an unsung hero in the Clutha Community.
- Youth Spirit Award – for a year 13 student who has greatly contributed to their school and community during their time as a student.
- Community Group Awards – for groups which have carried out projects in the past 12 months.
(Youth Spirit and Community Groups can self-nominate.)
There are monetary prizes up for grabs and the chance to showcase your group at an awards function.
To nominate someone, download a form from Council’s website, or pick one up from one of the Council offices or libraries.
Fill it in and send it in to Council before 30 June.
