These awards have been developed to recognise and celebrate the bright stars who volunteer in the play, active recreation and sport space in Te Tai Tokerau. Volunteers are often the heart and backbone of making play, active recreation and sport happen and this is an opportunity to recognise them for their community service.
Nominations for the Awards are due by 26 May 2023. All nominations must be completed online.
The award recognises no one ‘winner’ and is more of an opportunity for people/groups/organisations to recognise those bright stars who volunteer and contribute so much to the play, active recreation and sport space. Whether they are a coach, committee member, caretaker, deliverer, official etc. if they are one of those people who is a bright star in your club/organisation/group that deserves recognition then this opportunity is a great way to say ‘thanks’ and let everyone know about all the great work they do.
Nominations should highlight how long they have been volunteering, what they have contributed and any other details about them that makes them special.
