LIANZA Te Kura Pounamu

Christchurch City Libraries lists literary prize winners and links to catalogue searches, but we may not hold copies of all titles mentioned.

Te Kura Pounamu was established in 1995. This award is made to the writer of a book considered to be the most distinguished contribution to literature for children and young adults written in Te Reo Māori. It is awarded by the Library and Information Association of New Zealand Aotearoa. In 2016, the awards merged with the New Zealand Book Awards for Children and Young Adults and this award is now the Te Reo Māori (Te Kura Pounamu Award).
