I am delighted to announce that entries for the Spirit of Service Awards 2019 are now open.   

The spirit of service underpins everything we do as public servants. These Awards celebrate outstanding Public Sector leadership delivering exceptional outcomes for New Zealanders. 

Many of you will know of exceptional Public Sector initiatives or young leaders whose efforts have made a real difference. Now is the time to share these achievements. We want to hear your story.  

We’ve streamlined the entry process for the five award categories. You’ll find all the information you need to enter on the Spirit of Service Awards webpage, and you can stay updated on the Awards through the Facebook page.

Award winners will be announced at an evening event at Te Papa, Wellington, on 12 September. I am grateful to our generous sponsors who are helping to support this special event: Australia and New Zealand School of Government; Deloitte; Skills; and Victoria University of Wellington School of Government. 

It’s great to see that we’ve already had about 50 enquiries from agencies interested in highlighting Public Service excellence. I can’t wait to see our entries!
