Civic Awards 2024

Do you know someone who deserves to be recognised for their outstanding, unpaid dedication to the community?

The Napier Civic Awards return after a year’s absence. In 2023 we put them on hold and made it the year we recognised individuals and organisations who helped others during and after Cyclone Gabrielle. 

The civic awards are an opportunity to recognise the mahi of the valuable volunteers, those humble heroes who help to keep our city running. The selfless sports coach, the kitchen cooks, the church bell ringer, and many more. 

People are encouraged to nominate younger volunteers who demonstrate community spirit and service to Napier. It is usually older volunteers who have their names put forward, but the judging panel does not consider decades of service a compulsory part of the nomination criteria. 

Nominations open on 8 April and close on 3 May. There are three categories:the Civic Award, Civic Award for Meritorious Contribution to the Community, and Freedom of the City.
