Nominate an outstanding Carterton person, organisation, or business for a prestigious Charles Rooking Carter Award.
Our most recent awards broke all records for nominations, and we want to recognise even more of our amazing locals in 2022!
The Charles Rooking Carter Community Awards was created by the Carterton District Council in 1994 to publicly acknowledge and celebrate the outstanding volunteer work, business innovation, and achievements of members in the community.
The Awards are named after Charles Rooking Carter.
Carter was a strong advocate for Wairarapa settlers and was instrumental in developing many public services in Carterton including the library, an astronomical observatory, cemetery, post office, courthouse, and police station.
His most notable gifts to the town were the Carter Home for aged men, now known as Carter Court, and the Carter Reserve, an area of native bushland.
To date, over 142 Charles Rooking Carter Community awards have been given to people who generously provide time, passion, and commitment to making Carterton a caring and thriving place to live.
