Community awards open

The TrustPower Dunedin Community Awards are now open for entries from Dunedin voluntary groups.

TrustPower community relations representative Jess Somerville said 102 groups entered last year but many more voluntary groups in Dunedin deserved recognition.

Voluntary groups or organisations could enter themselves or they could be entered by a member of the public, Miss Somerville said.

The awards categories were heritage and environment, health and wellbeing, arts and culture, sport and leisure, and educational and child/youth development.

Category winners would win $500, runners-up $250 and the supreme winner would win $1500 and an all-expenses paid trip to the 2013 TrustPower national community awards.

Entry forms for the awards are available from the Dunedin City Council or can be completed online at or by calling 0800 87 11 11.

Entries close on March 8.
