He aha te mea nui o te ao? He takata, he takata, he takata. The purpose of the KMK Reo awards is to recognise, encourage and reward KMK’s most vital resource – our people.

The awards will recognise and highlight the achievements of those who are making an outstanding contribution to the regeneration of te reo Māori within the Ngāi Tahu takiwā, Te Waipounamu in different categories, from Papatipu Rūnaka reo champions to Kaiwhakaako. The KMK Reo awards aim to celebrate what has been accomplished and generate inspiration for others following in the recipients’ footsteps. A pānui with further details calling for nominations will be distributed to all Papatipu Rūnaka and relevant community networks in due course.
