Ngā Wāhanga Tohu
Award entries are judged across an Education Focus Prize and four categories that remain consistent each year: Excellence in Engaging, Excellence in Leading, Excellence in Teaching and Learning, and Excellence in Wellbeing Education. The Prime Minister’s Supreme Award is then given to the single best overall entry among the four category winners.
The Education Focus Prize changes each year to showcase different areas of the New Zealand education landscape. It is not eligible for the Supreme Award.
Ka whakawākia ngā tono mō te Taonga Mātauranga me ngā wāhanga e whā nei: Te Hiranga o te Arataki, Te Hiranga o te Tuitui Tāngata, Te Hiranga o te Ako, me Te Hiranga o Te Akoranga Hauora. Ka tukua te Tohu Nui a te Pirimia mō te tono pai rawa o ngā toa mō ia wāhanga.
