The ODT’s criterion for its Class Act awards is simple: excellence.
Every year since 2000 the paper has asked Otago’s secondary schools to nominate two pupils each on the basis of what they’ve have achieved and their potential for success in the future.
Each year the paper arranges a ceremony where the Prime Minister presents the recipients with their awards and the ODT shares their accomplishments with its readers.
Class Act unashamedly celebrates academic, sporting, social, artistic or cultural excellence and many of the recipients excel in more than one field.
It’s a classy act by the paper.
Today’s ODT looks at where the Class Act recipients of 2002 are now.
