Zonta Club annual Young Women in Public Affairs Award

September 28, 2021

Kia ora koutou katoa,

The Zonta Club annual Young Women in Public Affairs Award is now open for applications. We have been blown away by the calibre of the students who have applied over the past few years, and are anticipating this year to be no different. The passion and commitment expressed by your students continues to astound us each year!

The award is open to female or female-identifying year 13 students who have expressed an interest in public affairs throughout their time at secondary school, and can show evidence of volunteer leadership and service to school and community.

The successful applicant will receive NZD $1000  to assist her in continuing her education at a tertiary level. Each regional winner will be put forward for a national award of a further US $1000, and all national winners are put forward for an international award of a further US $4000.

There is no limit to the number of applications from each school – the more young women we can offer this opportunity to, the better!

Applications are due by 5:00pm on 29 October 2021.  Details for submitting the applications are in the attached documents. We encourage the applications to be brief and to the point – we understand that this is a busy time of year for both staff and students alike!

Please ensure that all forms for the application are collated by the student and submitted to us in one email. This ensures we don’t miss any information.

Feel free to get in touch if there’s any extra information that you or your students may need. Wishing you all the best at this busy time.

Nga Mihi,

Laura Jackson, Service Committee Chair
