BIGGER, BETTER AND WITH A FRESH NEW LOOK, 

THE HUTT CITY YOUTH AWARDS IS BACK FOR 2018!

The WelTec Hutt City Youth Awards, established in 2015, is all about shining a light on the amazing things that our young people are doing in Hutt City. With eight categories, the WelTec Hutt City Youth awards recognises those aged 12-21 who have achieved great things in leadership, the arts, contribution to sport, entrepreneurship, the embrace of diversity, science and technology, service to the community and overcoming adversity.

Thanks to the generosity of our major sponsors WelTec | Whitireia and our other category sponsors, each winner of the eight categories will be awarded a $500 cash prize at our awards ceremony on 25 October in Lower Hutt.

If you know a young person who’s doing amazing things, then get your nomination in for 2018!

A Message From The Chair

I’m really excited that the Hutt City Youth Awards are back, bigger and better, in 2018.

The Hutt City Youth Awards are all about shining a light on the talented young people we have here in the Hutt who show huge potential for the future, and who have made a significant contribution to the city already (Click here for the last three years award winners!).

The awards recognise the extraordinary breadth and depth of talent we have in our young people in Hutt City. Too often young people get a bad rap, particularly in the media. The reality is that in so many different fields, young people are achieving great things. They’re contributing to the community. They’re creating new businesses. They’re volunteering with charities; overcoming challenging personal circumstances to succeed against the odds; leading by example.

I can’t wait to see who the finalists and winners are for the 2018 awards and I look forward to celebrating with them on the awards night.

A massive thank you to all of the sponsors who help make this very special event happen.
