Nominations invited for Civic Awards
22 August 2003
Nominations for this year’s Civic Awards close on Friday 5 September.
These Awards are an opportunity for people working at the grass
roots level to be recognised for what they do,” Christchurch City
Council International Relations Co-ordinator, Dave Adamson said.
Individuals or societies can be nominated for the awards. Categories
include recreation, youth activities, social welfare, educational
services, cultural affairs, religious studies or any other service
that helps to further
the vision of Christchurch, according to the Council’s Statement of
Strategic Objectives. This is outlined in the Council’s Annual Plan.
After nominations have been received they are referred to the
Community Board in whose area, the ‘good works” have been done. Recommendations
on the nominations are then made by the Boards to Council.
The Civic Awards of a framed certificate and boxed medallion
are presented to recipients at a Civic Reception hosted by Christchurch
Dave Adamson said “I firmly believe if it wasn’t for people
like this ( the recipients), society would almost grind to a stop. Almost
without exception they get no recognition at all, other than the satisfaction
of a job well done – the Civic Awards are a way to rectify that.”
Nomination forms are available from Civic Offices, Council Service
Centres and libraries or by phoning 941 8775, for one to be posted.
