We are excited to announce that the Trust will once again be sponsoring a competition in conjunction with Youth Parliament 2022 to be held on 19 and 20 July.

The competition is CLOSED           

Three formats available:  Essay, Speech and Video Presentation


Topics for 2022 are:

“Do you think that New Zealand’s Parliament has too little, too much, or just the right amount of power?  Explain your answer”

“Identify a key issue currently facing our country and tell us how Parliament and the Business Community could partner together to devise a roadmap to achieving change on this issue”


Competition winner will receive a monetary award of $2,500.  Plus, two runner-up awards of $2,000. The competition is only open to 2022 Youth Members of Parliament, Youth Clerk, and Members of the Youth Press Gallery. Entries must be received by midnight, Thursday 26th May 2022.
