Trustpower Community Awards

Entries close 31 May

Hi there,

We want to celebrate your community’s volunteers and have $150,000 up for grabs across 26 eligible regions!

Entries close 31 May for the 2018 Trustpower Community Awards, and we thought you might know of a group (or another group) worth shouting about.

Whether it's a group dedicated to improving health and well-being, an environmental group, an iwi group, a sports, culture or arts club, or just a group of friendly neighbours who get together to help out; if they have volunteers and make our communities a better place to be, we want to hear about them.

It's quick and easy to enter online, and everyone who enters a group will go in the draw to win one of six $500 Prezzy Cards.*

Do your bit for your community in two minutes — enter a group today.

P.S. We're sorry if you've received this email and your group isn't based in one of our eligible regions.

However, if your group does complete work within an eligible region, we're able to accept your entry. Please be sure to include specific information about your group’s work in that particular location for the judges to consider.
