Citizens Awards


For Nomination Forms click here



Kaipara District Council awarded Citizens Awards annually from 20012012, based on recognition of the contributions and achievements of outstanding Kaipara citizens. We are now reinstating the annual Citizens Awards to show our commitment to recognising the contribution and achievements of individuals and organisations to the district.

Citizens Awards are awarded in recognition of substantial service, usually of a voluntary nature or beyond normal employment, benefiting Kaipara and its people. The nominees will have generally carried out predominantly voluntary work, but payment for services will not necessarily disqualify receiving an award. Applications will be assessed on their personal leadership, inspiration, sacrifice or devotion to a cause or made a significant contribution to the wellbeing of the Kaipara district and its citizens.

The Citizens Awards process will open annually, and advertisements will call for nominations. These nominations may be made by any person or organisation, in the appropriate form. It is not necessary to have the consent of the person or organisation being nominated for the Awards. If the nomination is successful, consent will be obtained from the intended recipient before any announcement is made to the public.

A Citizens Awards Committee, comprised of three Councillors will assess the nominations received. The decisions of the Committee will be reported to Council. Council will then announce the recipients of the annual Citizens Awards. Council can acknowledge as many or as few recipients as it sees fit in each application round.

Council will, at its discretion, host a formal ceremony to acknowledge the recipients.
