January 1, 2016, in Videos > Talk, by

This year, Kimberly D’Mello from Aquinas College, Tauranga, won the Baha’i Race Unity Speech Awards. This is a nation-wide competition that is open to senior high school students.

The theme for the 2015 competition was Big Change Starts Small – Itiiti Rearea, Kahika Teitei, Ka Taea (The smallest bellbird is able to climb to the heights of the tallest Kahika tree).

The Race Unity Conference was initiated in 2005, where students from all over New Zealand attend this event. They participate in interactive workshops designed to stimulate their thinking around race relations in Aotearoa New Zealand, and are encouraged to suggest initiatives and solutions that could help build a more harmonious society.Both the Speech Awards and the Conference are organised by the New Zealand Bahá’í community.
