Nominations for the 2013 awards will close at 5pm Friday 7 June 2013, and late nominations cannot be accepted.
Types of award
There are two types of award:
- The youth services award recognises a young person aged 15 to 25 who has carried out outstanding voluntary community service
- The voluntary community service awards recognise people who have contributed in the categories of community services, cultural affairs, educational services, recreation, social welfare or youth activities
A person is not eligible for nomination for either award if they were paid for their services.
Make a nomination
Each nomination needs to be made by two people from the same organisation. You can nominate a Hutt City resident or a person who lives outside the city, providing the outstanding voluntary service has been mainly carried out within Hutt City. You don’t need to get the consent of a person before you nominate them.
Nomination forms are available from the council building on Laings Road, from our libraries for a couple of months before nominations close or you can submit your nomination online.
