Waitematā Local Board seeks nominations for Good Citizens’ Awards

Published: 21 March 2019

Waitematā Local Board is seeking nominations from the community to help recognise people and groups, who go above and beyond to contribute towards making Waitematā a great place to live.

The local board introduced its Good Citizens’ Awards in 2011 and have run the event biennially since then.

Waitematā Local Board Chair Pippa Coom says sometimes the work recognised reaches further than just the Waitematā Local Board area.

“At our last Good Citizens’ Awards ceremony in 2017, Community Group Awards’ went to the Outreach Therapy Pets Programme and Rainbow Youth whose work covers the Auckland region.

“Our local board immensely values community-led work and our Good Citizens’ Awards is one of the ways we celebrate this good work. We encourage people to make nominations,” she said.

You can nominate a person or group based within the Waitematā Local Board area by using the online nomination form.

Nominations are open from Monday 18 March, closing Sunday 14 April 2019.

The successful nominees will be recognised at the Waitematā Local Board Good Citizens' Awards ceremony, which will be held at the Auckland Town Hall on Thursday 16 May 2019.
