Civic Awards 2020

Nominations for the CHB Civic Awards are now open!

In 1990, the Central Hawke’s Bay District Council in conjunction with the 1990 Commission and the Central Hawke’s Bay Women’s Institute, established a Civic Honours Award to ‘Recognise Outstanding Voluntary Community Service carried out within the Central Hawke’s Bay District ‘.

This year, in addition to the long-standing Civic Honours Award, we are pleased to announce the introduction of two new award categories, the Community Service Award and the Organisation of the Year Award.

While the Civic Honours Award remains the most prestigious award, honouring those outstanding citizens in our community who, over a long period of time, have gone above and beyond to serve their community, the two new award categories provide for multiple acknowledgements of community service in varying degrees.CHB Civic Awards FB

Central Hawke’s Bay Civic Honours Award

The Civic Honours Award is the most prestigious of the CHB Civic Awards and will be presented to individuals that have made an outstanding contribution to the CHB community over a long period. The Award is awarded in recognition of substantial service (usually of a voluntary nature or beyond normal employment).

Substantial service includes short term or long-term projects or activities that have benefited the Central Hawke’s Bay community, adding to the quality of life or residents.

The Civic Awards Committee may award up to four Civic Honour Awards annually.

What are the CHB Civic and Community Awards?

Central Hawke’s Bay District Council (Council) introduced its Civic Honours Award system in 1991 to enable voluntary service within the District to be duly recognised.

The Civic Honours Award was established at the initiative of the Central Hawke’s Bay Country Women’s Institute and the New Zealand 1990 Commission to mark the NZ 1990 year.

Since its inception, up to four Civic Honours Award have been presented annually. In 2019, the Civic Awards Committee sought to broaden the way it acknowledges and celebrates outstanding community service within the Central Hawke’s Bay District.

The CHB Civic Awards now provides for multiple acknowledgements of community service through two additional categories of awards — the Community Service Awards and the Community Organisation of the Year Award.
