Volunteer Wellington hosts the Mahi Aroha Awards – which is our chance to recognise and celebrate volunteers and volunteering in our community.

Why nominate?

Volunteer Wellington Mahi Aroha Awards are a wonderful opportunity to recognise the contribution and achievements of outstanding volunteers.

Who can you nominate?

Your organisation can nominate an individual volunteer, a Board/committee and an employee team volunteering in the community. They do not have to be a Volunteer Wellington member to be nominated.

Who can make a nomination?

Anyone can nominate any volunteer and business in the region that have been actively volunteering in the last two years.

How do you nominate?

Nominations are completed online and are open now. To access the nominations forms, click here...

The nomination forms allow you to enter information. Do not use any formatting or coloured text as this will be removed by our system. You need to enter one person at a time for each form (so one nomination for each person), and you can nominate as many times as you like across any of the categories.

Once you enter the text you can save it by pressing the button at the bottom of the edit screen.

Submitting your nomination

Please check that you have completed the information in the nomination correctly before submitting it. Once submitted you will not be able to change it.
