Nom­i­na­tions open for civic awards

Kapi-Mana News - - FRONT PAGE -

It’s time to sing the praises of the su­per he­roes in your com­mu­ni­ties with nom­i­na­tions now open for the 2016 Civic Awards.

The awards are held yearly to recog­nise up to five res­i­dents for out­stand­ing ser­vice to the city. They have been run­ning since 1993, and last year 50 awards were pre­sented to cel­e­brate the city’s 50th an­niver­sary.

In May, mayor Nick Leggett urged the com­mu­nity to recog­nise vol­un­teers in youth ac­tiv­i­ties, care of el­derly, ed­u­ca­tional ser­vices and cul­tural ac­tiv­i­ties.

‘‘You may know some­one that works with chil­dren or spends their evenings de­liv­er­ing meals to the el­derly. Any­one who does vol­un­tary work that makes our city a bet­ter place can be nom­i­nated.

Sport­ing achieve­ments are not el­i­gi­ble, as these are recog­nised by the Porirua Sports Awards.

Any two res­i­dents or two ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cers of any or­gan­i­sa­tion in Porirua can nom­i­nate a can­di­date for the awards.

Af­ter nom­i­na­tions close, a coun­cil sub­com­mit­tee meets to con­sider the nom­i­na­tions against the guide­line cri­te­ria and puts rec­om­men­da­tions to the full Coun­cil to con­firm the re­cip­i­ents.

Nom­i­na­tions close 4pm, Tues­day, August 9. Visit for more in­for­ma­tion.
