Entries for Beautiful awards open
The Keep New Zealand Beautiful awards are back.
This is a chance for communities, schools and individuals to be recognised for their great environmental work.
Keep New Zealand Beautiful chief executive Heather Saunderson says the awards give everyone the opportunity to celebrate the work done during the past 12 months.
The aim is to recognise the efforts of New Zealanders’ that successfully do their bit to keep the country beautiful, she says.
This year, there are eight categories which include the Young Legend award.
This award aims to acknowl- edge an outstanding volunteer under the age of 18, who demonstrates remarkable leadership in their community through environmental actions.
The other categories include the Sustainable Schools, Tidy Kiwi, Beautiful Towns and Cities, Best Loo, Community Environmental Initiative and the Kiwi’s Choice awards.
The awards are a great way to bring people with shared missions together.
Winners will be announced at the annual awards dinner held on October 15 at the Hilton Hotel in Auckland.
Visit the Keep New Zealand Beautiful Awards website for criteria criteria and entry forms.
Entries close on September 21.
