The Trustpower Community Awards, which recognise and reward the efforts of volunteers, first took place 25 years ago.
The prizemoney for a Trustpower Community Award is $1,000. Regional Supreme Winners will receive $2,000 and a trip for two to the 2018 Trustpower National Community Awards.
In a change from previous years, both Nelson and Tasman will each name a Supreme Winner, meaning two groups will progress to the Trustpower National Awards held the following year.
