Who is eligible for a Civic Award?

1. The Masterton District Council’s Civic Award acknowledges outstanding voluntary service to the Masterton District and its people.
2. Any person who has already received a Royal or New Zealand honour shall, only in special circumstances, be eligible for a Civic Award.
3. In special circumstances, the selection panel may make a Civic Award to a person who lives outside the district boundaries, providing the deserving voluntary service concerned has been wholly or predominantly carried out for the benefit of the Masterton District and its people.

What kind of service merits a Civic Award?

4. Deserving Voluntary service is recognised by the Masterton District Council’s Civic Awards.
In the ordinary course of events the person’s or group’s service will have overall been of a voluntary nature; however, the payment of an honorarium or such similar monetary recompense to an office holder will not necessarily disqualify the person from receiving an Award.
