The Race Unity Speech Awards are an annual national contest for senior high school students. They date back to 2001, when the NZ Baha'i community initiated and organised the Awards in support of Race Relations Day. Initially held just in Auckland, the competition has now spread to many other parts of the country, including Hawkes Bay.

This is a report on the HB Regional Finals which were held on 26th March at the Waiohiki Creative Arts Village.

The four HB entrants were: Sarah Morton (HGHS), Doug Winterburn (NBHS), Ariana Lander (HNHS), and Romaine Crawford (Karamu HS).

The three Hawke's Bay regional judges this year were Jenny Roberston (Head of The English Language School at the EIT), Police Senior Sergeant David Sutherland, and Margot Macphail from the Hastings Baha’i community.

Ariana Lander went on to represent Hawkes Bay at the national semi-finals in Auckland, with the runner-up being Sarah Morton. Congratulations to all participants for their excellent presentations.
