In Upper Hutt we pride ourselves on celebrating our community through a variety of awards, they include:

Civic Awards

These awards are designed to recognise a person who has carried out meritorious voluntary community service for the City of Upper Hutt. It is likely, but not essential, that this community service will be in one of the fields of welfare, youth or aged services, community education, cultural activities or sport and recreation administration.

Wellington Airport Community Awards 2016

Wellington Airport, in partnership with Wellington Community Trust and the five local councils, joined together to recognise the work carried out by community groups in the wider Wellington region. The focus of the Awards was to reward the valuable contribution made by volunteers.
