Notice reference #: 1HA8nP

The Ngārimu Video Competition is open to submissions. All students and ākonga from Y7–13 can submit a video to be in with a chance of winning $2,200 for themselves and $950 for their school or kura.

The Ngārimu Video Competition started last year, as a way to honour the legacy of Victoria Cross winner Second Lieutenant Te Moana-nui-a-Kiwa Ngārimu and the other members of the 28th (Māori) Battalion.

The aim of the competition is to promote study and encourage the learning of te reo Māori and Māori history, tradition and culture.

It is an opportunity for students and ākonga to practice storytelling, develop research skills and learn about the history of the Māori Battalion.

To enter, students and ākonga must submit a short video, 3–5 minutes long. A video can be submitted by an individual or a team. It should be led by students and ākonga.

The video must reflect one of the three kaupapa outlined on the Ngārimu Video Competition website, where you can also find information on how to enter. 

Videos must be submitted on, or before, Monday 12 October.
