Nominate a Horowhenua person for 2015 New Zealander of the Year
Horowhenua Mayor Brendan Duffy has no doubt the 2015 New Zealander of the Year should be a local resident.
However, he says for that to happen, people need to act and nominate someone before Tuesday 30 September 2014.
Now in its sixth year, the annual awards recognise, encourage and reward the contributions of New Zealanders from all walks of life.
“One of the best things about my job is I get to meet or hear people doing fantastic things for our community - and therefore for New Zealand," Mayor Duffy said.
“These are people whose selflessness has had a profound effect on the lives of so many others, yet their achievements are often unrecognised.
“I can think of no better opportunity to show the rest of the country how proud we are of our own and that we believe they are among New Zealand’s very best."
In addition to the Kiwibank New
Zealander of the Year, awards will also be presented in five
additional categories, including:
• University of Auckland Young New Zealander of the Year
• Metlifecare Senior New Zealander of the Year
• Mitre 10 Community of the Year
• Sanitarium Innovator of the Year
• Kiwibank Local Heroes Awards
Nominations for the 2015 Kiwibank New Zealander of the Year Awards can be made by completing an online nomination form or requesting an information brochure from the Awards Office.
The awards will be announced by the Prime Minister at a gala event in Auckland on 25 February.
