Admarie Phipps and Margarette Groves were awarded for volunteerism; Tavian Jones and Kimani Martin won for youth in service; Delores Treasure and Novelette Howell were awarded for leadership, and Tracy-Ann Johnson and Tamara Reynolds won for community development.
Special awards were presented to Mount Salus Farmers' Group, Harbour View Citizens' Association, Stadium Gardens Citizens' Association, and Eastwood Gardens Youth for Progress Youth Club. They were recognised for being outstanding community-based organisations.
