Volunteers are the backbone behind every New Zealand community, dedicating more than 270 million unpaid hours every year for non-profit organisations up and down the country. TrustPower understands that, which is why we celebrate and reward volunteers through our TrustPower Community Awards programme.
Through the TrustPower Community Awards, volunteers are given the recognition they really deserve. No matter how big or small, if your group, club or society involves volunteers - then the TrustPower Community Awards are for you.
Entries close on Friday, September 14.
The TrustPower Community Awards were initially set up with the Western Bay of Plenty District Council in 1994 when TrustPower became a listed company. Since then, TrustPower has established Community Awards in cities and districts right around the country, as a way of giving something back to its customers and their community.
The TrustPower Community Awards are not grants....they are awards which recognise and reward voluntary groups and organisations for the valuable contribution they make to their community. The TrustPower Community Awards are run in 25 districts around the country, in conjunction with local district or city councils.
In 2000, TrustPower initiated the National Community Awards. At the TrustPower National Community Awards the Supreme Winners from the regional Community Awards share ideas and experiences and compete for the title of TrustPower National Community Awards Supreme Winner.
It's easy to nominate a voluntary group or not-for-profit organisation for the TrustPower Community Awards. Simply fill out a nomination form and fax or post it to your local Council, as detailed on the form.
We will need some additional information about the nominated organisation, such as volunteer numbers and details of the activities carried out over the previous 12 months. Therefore, it's important you include a contact name and number on the nomination form so we can contact the group or organisation to access this information.
The additional information required is outlined in the Information Form, which can be downloaded below.
YES - you can nominate your own voluntary group. If you are nominating a voluntary group you are part of please complete both the Nomination and Information Forms.
All Nomination and Information Forms are sent to the city or district Council in you region, who collate the nominations and organising for them to be considered by the judging panel.
