Second Highest Response to Tararua District’s Community Awards

With 56 entries received for the Trustpower Tararua District Community Awards, the second highest result since the awards started in 2004; locals have really got behind their volunteers.

The Trustpower Tararua District Community Awards, which recognise and reward voluntary groups for the outstanding contribution they make to the local community, are run in partnership with the Tararua District Council.

Trustpower Community Relations Representative Jess Somerville says the Trustpower Community Awards help to recognise the people who put their hearts and souls into helping out.

“The generosity of volunteers and the variety of projects they lend a hand to for their local community never ceases to amaze me. Once again the Tararua community has got behind their community, and I’m stoked that we will be celebrating so many talented, resourceful and hardworking volunteers through this year’s Trustpower Community Awards.

“I would like to thank all of the people who put so much effort into the Tararua entries this year,” says Miss Somerville.

The Awards cover five categories; Heritage and Environment, Health and Wellbeing, Arts and Culture, Sport and Leisure, and Education and Child/Youth Development. The category winners receive $500 and runners-up receive $250.

The Supreme Winner will take home $1,500, a trophy, framed certificate and an all-expenses paid trip to the Trustpower National Community Awards. The 2014 Trustpower National Community Awards will be held in the Wellington region in March 2015.

The entries for the Trustpower Tararua District Community Awards are currently being prepared for judging with the results to be announced and presented at a function on Wednesday 24 September, to which all entered organisations as well as those that entered groups will be invited.
