Central Leader - - YOUR PAPER, YOUR PLACE - TORIKA TOKALAU-CHANDRA

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.

En­tries close on Septem­ber 21.
