2021 Tawa Community Civic Awards

If you know someone who invests time and effort in the Tawa community - mostly on a voluntary basis - you can nominate them for a Tawa Community Civic Award.

The awards recognise and show appreciation to not-for-profit groups, organisations and individuals who work to improve the Tawa community and make it a better place to live. They have been run by the Tawa Community Board every 2 years from 2006 to 2018, and again this year.

Each nominee will receive a certificate from the Mayor of Wellington. 

Nominations closed 11.59pm Sunday 29 August 2021.
