The generosity of volunteers, and the variety of projects they lend a hand to for their local community, never ceases to amaze me.
Jess Somerville, Trustpower Community Relations Representative

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. Entries for the Community Awards closed on Friday 9 May.

Trustpower Community Relations Representative Jess Somerville says the Trustpower Community Awards help to recognise the people who put their heart and souls into helping out.

“The generosity of volunteers, and the variety of projects they lend a hand to for their local community, never ceases to amaze me. Once again the Nelson and Tasman community has got behind their community, and I’m stoked that we will be celebrating so many talented, resourceful and hard working volunteers through this year’s Trustpower Community Awards.

“I would like to thank all of the people who put so much effort into the 110 entries this year,” says Miss Somerville.

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 2014 Trustpower National Community Awards will be held in the Wellington region in March 2015.

The entries for the Trustpower Nelson Tasman Community Awards are currently being prepared for judging with the results to be announced and presented at a function on Tuesday 1 July, to which all entered organisations as well as those that entered groups will be invited.
