We want to help NZ schools and communities recognise and value the importance of 21C skills, and show our young people how critical these work-ready skills are when it counts – at their annual prizegiving.
We know how committed you are to this kaupapa so we would love for you to get behind the 21C Prizegiving Challenge and show our young people that “skills not scores” are what count.
Our vision is that each of our 374 secondary schools throughout NZ can award a prize, sponsored by a NZ business, honouring a Y13 student exhibiting outstanding 21C skills in their 2019 senior prizegiving ceremony.
We’re challenging NZ businesses – small, medium and large – to pledge $200 (or $200 x however many prizes you want to award), to provide a prize for exceptional 21C skills to a student at a secondary school you choose or in a region you specify, with your business’s name on it. You can sponsor one as an individual too!
