Nominations open for the 2020 East Auckland Youth Awards

HYC is proud to present the East Auckland Youth Awards for its second year running!


We all have family and friends who achieve incredible things in the community. And, yet, sometimes, they don't get the recognition they deserve. Here's your chance to say thank you to the silent heroes in your life!


With awards in sports, arts, community and more, we want to know who you think deserves a nomination for their achievements in East Auckland.


The nomination form can be found at youth.org.nz/hyc2020awards


Nominations close mid-November. Anyone can put a nomination in! Youth between the ages of 12 and 24 who live, work or go to school in the East Auckland area (Howick, Pakuranga, Botany, Ormiston) are eligible for awards.
