Attitude Awards celebrate Kiwi courage
Nominations are open for the sixth Attitude Awards.
The awards celebrate high achievers who have taken on the world and its perception of disability.
Entrants range from supreme athletes to less wellknown New Zealanders whose family, friends and neighbours think they should be recognised for their courage, perseverance, or support for people who live with disabilities.
Attitude Awards trustee Dan Buckingham, a member of the Wheel Black team, says success for the award winners means more than a medal or prize.
‘‘We look for the stories of courage and determination that change the way people view what is achievable with a disability,’’ he says.
The Attitude Awards will be celebrated at a gala dinner in Auckland on December 3.
Nomination forms can be downloaded from attitude awards.org and emailed to email@example.com or posted to Attitude Awards 2013, PO Box 9071, Newmarket, Auckland 1149. Nominations close at 5pm on July 3.
