Celebrating Everyday Young New Zealanders – recognising the positive contribution of young people

The Minister of Youth Affairs, with the assistance of the Ministry of Youth Development, is celebrating the positive contribution that young people make to our communities and to New Zealand, and will be profiling the achievements of 12 young people from all over the country as part of Youth Week 08 celebrations.

We would like you to nominate a young person to be part of this unique celebration.

Open to any young person in New Zealand aged 12 to 24 years, Celebrating Everyday Young New Zealanders does not only reward the ‘best’, ‘greatest’ or ‘highest’ achievers, instead it promotes the many positive things young people do all around New Zealand.

Anyone can nominate – youth workers, caregivers, teachers, parents, social workers, community leaders, friends, coaches, even young people.

Nominations close on 2 May 2008.
