Dunedin community award nominations open

Entries for the TrustPower Dunedin Community Awards to recognise volunteer groups and organisations opened on Monday.

TrustPower spokeswoman Emily Beaton said anybody could nominate a voluntary group or organisation.

The awards, run in partnership with the Dunedin City Council, covered five categories - heritage and environment, health and wellbeing, arts and culture, sport and leisure and education and child and youth development.

Category winners got $500, runners-up $250 and the supreme winner $1500 plus an all-expenses-paid trip for two to the 2014 TrustPower National Community Awards.

Last year's Dunedin supreme winner was the Neurological Foundation Southern Chair of Neurosurgery.

Entry forms were avail-able from the council or from www.trustpower.co.nz/ communityawards and entries closed on March 7.

Miss Beaton said the Central Otago awards would open on January 27.

Opening dates for entries for Waitaki, Invercargill, Clutha and Queenstown were yet to be confirmed.
