The Government announcement on Tuesday 11 August that Auckland is at Alert Level 3 and the rest of the country is at Alert Level 2 from midday Wednesday 12 August to midnight on Friday 14 August unfortunately has impacted on Apprentice of the Year.
The Bay of Plenty/Central Plateau Awards Event that was planned for Friday 14 August in Tauranga, has been postponed until further notice. 
A decision about the remaining Regional Awards Events will be made on 16th August based on the Government update at that time.  We are committed to continue with these events if it is safe and possible to do so.
The health and safety of our entrants, judges, staff and the community will always be the top priority, and this will be behind every decision we make.
If you have any questions please contact your Regional Apprentice of the Year Co-ordinator.
