The TE ARAWA AWARDS recognises outstanding achievements and high performances by individuals and collectives of Te Arawa descent.

The Te Arawa Rangatahi Achievement Awards component is a vehicle to recognise the achievements of individual, and Te Arawa Rangatahi collectives. The awards will encourage and promote participation, future opportunities, leadership and interaction in a positive environment whilst providing Rangatahi with incentives to fulfil their potential and take pride in the talents and abilities they possess.
A new wānanga component will be added to the rangatahi category of the Awards for rangatahi to express how their success is also the success of their whānau, their hapu, their marae and their iwi.
The Te Arawa Iwi Awards recognises our Whānau, our Hapū and our Iwi contributions to building a better Te Arawa as well as raising the collective wellbeing of Te Arawa through the category.
In addition to the Te Arawa Iwi Awards categories are the Te Arawa Hall of Fame and Roll of Honour Memberships, where individuals and/or groups who have made a significant contribution to Te Arawa through outstanding achievements are celebrated and appropriately honoured.
Te Papa Takaro encourages you to nominate your Whānau, Marae, Hapū, friends or someone that you think is deserving of such awards. Remember: if you do not nominate, your prospective nominee will not be considered in these awards.
