About the Civic Awards
Hutt City Council’s annual Civic Honours Awards celebrate the amazing volunteers who make our city great.
The Civic Awards acknowledge locals who have volunteered their time to services that benefit residents or organisations in Lower Hutt.
Recipients receive a certificate and silver medal presented to them by the Mayor at Council's Volunteer Awards celebration.
There are two types of Civic Awards:
- Community Services (Civic Honour) - recognising outstanding, long-term voluntary community service
- Youth Services - recognising outstanding voluntary community service from 15-25 year olds
2019 nominations are open
To make a nomination, download the combined nomination form and guide. You can also collect a copy from Council’s building on Laings Road or any Hutt City library.

Please note: if a nominee has been paid for their services they aren't eligible to be nominated for an award.
