Prizes for Te Reo Māori
Waikato Raupatu Land Trust Prize in Te Reo
This prize was established in 2007 to recognize and honour the support and close ties between Tainui and The University of Waikato. The Prize was reviewed in 2018, with the award amount increased in value, awards made on a biannual basis (starting in 2018), and the award given to the student with the highest GPA in the creative paper MAORI316 Te Reo Ahurei.
MAORI316 has emphasis on developing oral and critical skills in the use of the Māori language with particular attention on the critical examination and understanding of composition styles, including performance of poetic genres.
