2018 NSNZ Awards
The 2018 Neighbourhood Support New Zealand Awards (NSNZ) is an opportunity for us to come together as an organisation to recognise and celebrate the invaluable support and outcomes that our members, volunteers, and partners have contributed to NSNZ and our local communities over the past year.
As a mostly volunteer run organisation, it takes thousands of individuals, schools, businesses, and groups to help us achieve our vision of creating safer, resilient and more connected communities. Know of a volunteer or partner who went above and beyond? Now is your chance to say ‘thank you’ and let them know how much their support means to us all!
The following categories have been specially created to help us recognise outstanding works and efforts from our members, volunteers, and partners who help make Neighbourhood Support New Zealand the amazing network and resource that it is.
We are looking for nominations from members that reflect innovation and enthusiasm for achieving one or more of the following criteria:
>> Dedication to promoting and / or improving NSNZ and our Member Organisations in any capacity including funding, membership, profile, campaigns, and operations
>> Positively impacting the community, other members, or neighbours through NSNZ
>> Supporting our key areas of work - safer communities, resilient communities, and / or connected communities
This year's award categories are:
1. Coordinator of the Year
An Area Coordinator who currently works for a NSNZ Member Organisation either in a paid or voluntary capacity and consistently goes above and beyond the call of duty.
2. Volunteer of the Year
Someone currently volunteering for a NSNZ Member Organisation (i.e. street contact, committee member, etc.) who has provided outstanding service.
3. Project of the Year
A project run by a NSNZ Member Organisation which achieved a positive outcome.
4. Partner of the Year
An organisation (i.e. business, school, government agency, or other community organisation) who has worked effectively with a NSNZ Member Organisation.
5. Champion of the Year
An individual or group who has worked hard to promote and support the Neighbourhood Support message this year.
Awards will be presented at our AGM which will be held this year on October 31st, 2018 at the West Plaza Hotel in Wellington, NZ.
