NOMINATIONS FOR 2021 HAVE CLOSED
BLAKE Young Leader Awards – nominations open!
Sir Peter Blake believed in the incredible potential of young people to achieve great things.
The BLAKE Young Leader Awards aim to recognise our young New Zealanders (Years 5-8) who show commitment to leading positive change in their community that leads to a sustainable future for Aotearoa.
Each year, together with our Foundation Partner Westpac, we ask primary and intermediate schools all over New Zealand to nominate one promising young Kiwi leader per school for a BLAKE Young Leader Award.
The BLAKE Young Leader Award presentations take place in September each year, with Westpac branch staff across the country presenting these awards to the students who are nominated by their schools.
Nominations for 2021 closed on July 20. We are unable to accept any late nominations, no exceptions. Please sign up to our Newsletter at the end of this page to hear when our Young Leader Awards open in 2022.
Nominations for 2022 will open in May 2022.
