New Zealand Book Awards

The foundation sponsors two categories in the New Zealand Book Awards for Children and Young Adults - the Wright Family Foundation Te Kuru Pounamu Award and the Wright Family Foundation Esther Glen Award for Junior Fiction.

Supporting literacy is one of our key goals, and we are excited to help bring encouragement to the writers of children’s stories told in Te Reo - both Maori and non-Maori speakers will benefit.

We feel further honoured to have our name alongside that of Esther Glen for the Junior Fiction Award.
