If there was ever a time to celebrate what connects New Zealanders – our people – it's now. Aotearoa, it's time to introduce you to your 2021 Kiwibank New Zealander of the Year Awards – Ngā Tohu Pou Kōhure o Aotearoa finalists!
We hope you'll join us in raising the roof for these eighteen legendary New Zealanders. Together, they've made it from our original long list – featuring thousands of nominations – to the final three in each of their respective categories. If we do say so ourselves, that's a feat worth celebrating.
So, without further ado, meet your 2021 finalists.
