Civic Honours Awards
A Civic Honour is the highest award that Whangarei District Council bestows upon its citizens.
Every year Whangarei District Council honours up to four citizens for outstanding voluntary service with the Civic Honours Awards.
Civic Honours Awards give recognition to those citizens, who by their personal leadership, inspiration, sacrifice or devotion to a cause, have made a significant contribution to the community wellbeing of the Whangarei District.
The usual maximum number of recipients in any one year is four.
