Celebrating Māori achievement in Otago Secondary Schools
He tāoka, he koha, he kuru pounamu

The awards ceremony is an opportunity to celebrate the achievement of rakatahi Māori in secondary schools across Otago.


Kia ora Koutou,

Due to the current Covid Alert Level 2 environment, the Mana Pounamu committee is yet to make a final decision on how we will celebrate this event.

However, please be assured that recipients will be acknowledged for their successes.

Nominations for this award are now OPEN and are open until Wednesday, 20th October 2021, 12noon, and can be made via the form on this website. 

As with previous years, we look forward to receiving your nominees as they continue to inspire us with their values and achievements and thank you for your continued efforts to prepare and empower all students for their further tertiary studies.

Ngā mihi nui,

Mana Pounamu Committee
