Open from 25 September to 15 October, WWF-New Zealand’s Conservation Innovation Awards seek out and reward innovative game-changers for conservation. To find out how to submit an idea visit www.wwf.org.nz/innovation. A prize package of $25,000 will be awarded to each of the three winners.

Treasury University Challenge – last chance to apply

Do you want a chance to have your say on real-life policy issues currently facing New Zealand? Submissions for the Treasury University Challenge close on Sunday 1 October!

This is the last week  to get your submission together, which you can present as either:

  • an essay of up to 2,000 words (excluding references)
  • a video presentation of up to 5 minutes, or
  • an A3 poster

The top five submissions will be awarded study grants of up to $2,000 and the chance to spend a day in Wellington on 23 November. This ‘finals day’ will include a panel discussion with staff from a variety of teams, a social activity with the 2017 Treasury interns and a prize giving ceremony.

This is a fantastic way to learn more about working in the public sector.
