Rescheduled. In-light of the current COVID levels, the uncertainty of level two being lifted next week and the availability of the Energy Events Centre, the Rotorua Youth Awards is rescheduled to Sunday 27 September with the doors opening at 5:00pm.
Our aim is to honour exceptional Rotorua youth (aged 15-24) to celebrate excellence and their achievements or service to the community.
The RYA will provide a platform of distinction to allow peer and community recognition with award finalists officially acknowledged at the RYA Celebration; a night of glamour and glitz, key note speakers and entertainment where young people are appreciated for their outstanding dedication in the community and their nominated category.
Awards General Criteria
To be eligible, nominees must be aged between 15 and 24, currently live or have lived in the Rotorua District in the past 12 months.
Nominees must have:
Contributed significantly to their community/team/workplace

The awards information and nomination process will be sent to Rotorua High Schools, Youth Service providers, the Rotorua Lakes Council, various local trusts, organisations, the OneChance NZ website, Facebook, email database and local media. The public are encouraged to nominate online to ensure the process is transparent and accountable. Nominations are counted, collated and the top three nominations in each category making the finals. Once the judges have selected the three finalists for the ‘X-Factor’ Peoples Choice, the public can then vote online to decide the winner.
