Wairarapa Māori Sports Awards

Ngā Tohu Kaihakinakina Māori o Wairarapa

Update for 2020

The COVID-19 pandemic has presented many challenges, including a disruption to the annual sporting calendar. With the current COVID-19 Alert Levels in place, and uncertainty around further restrictions, the Wairarapa Māori Sports Award Committee has made the decision to cancel our event for 2020. This decision was not made lightly. Our decision has been made while placing the health and safety of our Wairarapa whānau at the forefront of our hearts and minds. We appreciate this is disappointing news, though we look forward to reintroducing the WMSA in 2021.

Wairarapa Māori Sports Awards was first established in 2007 by the late Jeff Workman. Jeff developed the Awards to celebrate Wairarapa Māori sporting participation, achievement and excellence, and to showcase our positive role models. Since then, the WMSA has grown in strength and in numbers to include new Sports Awards categories, sponsorship and funding, including the Robert Algie Memorial Trust Scholarships. All our WMSA Nominees, Finalists and Winners for the past 12 years have been mentors for our community, providing mana for our athletes, as well as inspiration for our rangatahi.

Thank you for your ongoing support of our annual event. If you have any questions or feedback, please contact us by email at wmsa@whaiora.org.nz
