Volunteers hold our communities together, and the time has come to say “thanks” via the TrustPower Nelson Tasman Community Awards.


Volunteers hold our communities together, and the time has come to say “thanks” via the TrustPower Nelson Tasman Community Awards.

The annual awards, run in partnership with Tasman District and Nelson City Councils, are open to all voluntary groups and organisations working to make their communities a better place to live. Since the awards began in 1999 more than $82,000 has been given away to deserving voluntary groups and organisations, and this year more than $7500 is up for grabs.

The awards cover five categories; Heritage and Environment, Health and Wellbeing, Arts and Culture, Sport and Leisure, and Education and Child/Youth Development. Category winners receive $500, runners-up receive $250 and the Supreme Winner will take home $1,500 and an all-expenses paid trip for two representatives to the 2015 Trustpower National Community Awards. Last year’s Trustpower Nelson Tasman Community Awards Supreme Winner was Project Butterfly.

Entry forms are available from Council offices and service centres, or can be completed online at www.Trustpower.co.nz/communityawards. Entries close at 5.00 pm on Friday 1 May 2015.
