Nau mai, haere mai!

Unleash your students' digital creativity!

The DigiAwards enables primary and intermediate students from throughout Waitaha to design, develop and showcase their digital outcomes. 

There are so many positive and exciting things happening in our city so the theme for DigiAwards 2019 is: 

Innovative Ōtautahi! 

Or you can enter under a self-chosen theme. Find out more about the theme, categories and criteria below.

This is what teachers said about last year's event...

"Your competition is a great platform for me and the children to 'do' challenging DT (Digital Technologies) based work."

"Digiawards encourages and inspires students to think creatively and use their imagination. It encourages the idea of students to become entrepreneurs and find solutions to problems the world faces."

"INCREDIBLE! Community and students were extremely supportive and excited to be a part of it. Students share it as a highlight of the year. It has inspired students to take risks and try new things."
