Nominations now open for Hamilton Civic Awards

Public nominations are now open for the second round of Hamilton Civic Awards for 2021, aiming to recognise exceptional people in our midst.

Managed by Hamilton City Council, the Awards celebrate those in our community who have demonstrated extraordinary service for the benefit of Hamilton. People can be nominated for their involvement in community activities such as arts and culture, the environment, business, education, sport and leisure, and people and wellbeing.

Hamilton Mayor Paula Southgate said she is thrilled Council will once again recognise the achievements of very special people in our community.

“The Awards are one way that we can come together as a city and recognise the achievements of some of our most hardworking, deserving individuals,” Southgate said. “Twice a year we get to acknowledge celebrate some exceptional people and the work that they do.”


“Collectively, Civic Award recipients contribute so much to Hamilton, and we all benefit from their work and dedication. I look forward to presenting these Awards to the second round of recipients for 2021 in November.”

Nominations are typically received for a wide cross-section of hardworking people who contribute to the wider Hamilton community. Past nominations have described recipients as hard-working, humble, a ‘local icon’, and a ‘true champion of people’.

Does this sound like someone you know? If so, we’d love to hear from you! Find the online nomination form here.

Nominations close on Saturday 21 August, with the Awards to be presented at a reception at Claudelands on Thursday 4 November.
