Who will be named 2021 Mitre 10 Community of the Year?

Meet the 2021 Mitre 10 Community of the Year finalists

1 March 2021

The shortlist of 10 has been narrowed to three finalists for the 2021 Ngā Pou Whirinaki o te Tau Mitre 10 Community of the Year Award. The three operate in very distinct and different facets of community involvement but all have demonstrated tangible impact and contributed to national conversations around some of the most pressing issues our country faces.

American writer Margaret .J Wheatley once said: “There is no power for change greater than a community discovering what it cares about.”

Commenting on the finalists, Mitre 10’s representative on the judging panel, Chief of Customer Marketing & Inspiration Jules Lloyd-Jones said:

“These three finalists have each demonstrated what they care about, what matters to them… and they have created positive change. Whether it’s inclusiveness and forgiveness, shelter and support, or the restoration of our precious planet, these communities are making a real and discernible impact. Their dedication is helping create change in our national conversations, shining a light on some of the issues facing us as a country and showing an alternative way forward.

It was incredibly tough selecting just three - all ten semi-finalists are doing important, inspiring work and I’d like to congratulate all of them on the difference they are making in so many lives.”

Congratulations to the finalists in the 2021 Ngā Pou Whirinaki o te Tau Mitre 10 Community of the Year Award:

  • Christchurch Mosque Victims Group
