yia! finalists decided – People’s Choice voting to begin


We’ve received a record number of completed entries this year for yia! – close to 300 from across our Tauranga Moana schools – and these have now been double-judged by 30 volunteers from our local business community. This means this year’s finalists will soon be revealed!

Keep your eyes open this Friday as our People’s Choice voting gets underway. Once again sponsored by our mates at Bayfair, head along there to see our yia! site on display and ensure you, your family, your friends and anyone else you speak with jump online and get voting for your favourite entries. There are 8 chances to win $50 Bayfair gift cards for those that vote – do that on the yia! website and then engage with our People’s Choice voting social media posts to be in with a chance. It’s that easy. One vote per person per category and voting will close Tuesday 24th August.

The student winners of the People’s Choice will of course be announced at Awards Night on 26th August. Classic Flyers will host us, and we look forward to celebrating the efforts of our finalists, as well as all entrants for yia! 2021.
