The Community Awards are all about recognising the hard work of these voluntary groups. The work is often done behind the scenes and the volunteers work tirelessly and give so much for the benefit of those who live in the Nelson City and Tasman Districts.
Teresa Partridge, Trustpower Community Relations Representative

Entries for the Community Awards closed on Friday 17 May 2013. The TrustPower Nelson Tasman Community Awards, which recognise and reward voluntary groups for the outstanding contribution they make to the local community, are run in partnership with the Nelson City and Tasman District Councils. 

TrustPower Community Relations Representative Teresa Partridge says she is very pleased with the variety of entries from across the district for the year’s Community Awards. 

“I’m over the moon with the amount of entries this year! The Community Awards are all about recognising the hard work of these voluntary groups. The work is often done behind the scenes and the volunteers work tirelessly and give so much for the benefit of those who live in the Nelson City and Tasman Districts. 

A huge ‘thanks’ to those who entered these wonderful voluntary groups as well,” says Mrs Partridge. 

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 2013 TrustPower National Community Awards will be held in the Invercargill and Southland region in March 2014. 

The entries for the TrustPower Nelson Tasman Community Awards are currently being prepared for judging. The TrustPower Nelson Tasman Community Awards will be announced and presented at a function on Monday 29 July, to which all entered organisations as well as those that entered groups will be invited.
