Reward & recognition

Our Tidy Kiwi Volunteer on the Month and Beautiful Awards programmes are all about recognising, acknowledging and celebrating all of the awesome work that is happening out there in our cities, towns, schools, community groups, and all the passionate individuals who are working in their individual communities to Keep New Zealand Beautiful.

Beautiful Awards

For the better part of half a century we’ve been holding an equivalent of the Beautiful Awards, celebrating year in and year out the efforts and dedication of those people and places who are committed to keeping our communities safe, clean and beautiful for future generations.

The Beautiful Awards are run annually and act as a bench mark for environmental excellence. Each year we celebrate everyone and everything from young legends, sustainable schools, community environmental initiation, and best towns and cities – right through to best street and best loo!

Tidy Kiwi Volunteer of the Month

It takes all of us to do our bit to Keep New Zealand Beautiful, which is why each and every month we like to do a shout out to our local heroes who are doing their bit for our environment – whatever that may be!

We’re always on the look out for Tidy Kiwis, but if you have someone you think is doing something exceptional, then nominate them to be our Tidy Kiwi Volunteer of the Month.

All our Volunteers of the Month are automatically entered into either the Young Legend or Tidy Kiwi category of the Beautiful Awards.
