Maori Television is Looking for New Zealand’s Future Stars

Do you know an exceptional young New Zealander the rest of the country should meet?

They could be a talented inventor, kapa haka expert, rising sports star or master debater. Perhaps they are a gifted musician, maths prodigy or an eco-warrior. They will be aged 18 and under and have a story that needs to be told.

Whatever their special skill; Maori Television wants to hear about these amazing young New Zealanders. We are on the hunt for rising stars from kindergarten through to high school to take part in MATARIKI MAGIC, a two-hour spectacular that will be screened LIVE on Maori Television.

Hosted by Matai Smith - New Zealand’s Best Presenter for 2012 – and two young co-presenters, MATARIKI MAGIC will take place at the Pacific Events Centre in Manukau on June 22.

Matariki is the star cluster that heralds the start of the Maori New Year. Occurring in the pre-dawn sky from mid to late June each year, Matariki was traditionally a time to prepare for the year ahead, a time to learn and a time to celebrate the future.

Starting this month, Maori Television’s crews will be hitting the road in search of the best and brightest young people from around the country to take part in the MATARIKI MAGIC concert.

What are you waiting for? If you know someone with exceptional talent in your family, at your school, next door or in the wider community, email us at matarikimagic@maoritelevision.com.

We need the following details: Age, address and phone number, a photo, personal profile and, where possible, accompanying video.

Scoop Review Of Books: Wartime Women

Coinciding as it does with the movie Imitation Game which focusses on Alan Turing breaking the Enigma code in Hut 6 at Bletchley Park (“BP”), this book is likely to attract a wide readership. It deserves to do so, as it illustrates that BP was very much more than Turing and his colleagues. More>>
