Worthy winners

Stuff reports:

Oscar winner Sir , who helped New Zealand forge a role in the global film industry, last night won yet another public accolade, named Kiwibank New Zealander of the Year at a ritzy awards dinner in Auckland.

A very worthy winner. Those who work with Richard tend to rave about him. He has made a huge contribution to New Zealand.

The Young New Zealander award this year went to , the founder and leader of the Student Volunteer Army, which helped Christchurch residents recover after earthquakes battered their city.

Also a great choice, and almost indisputable that it should go to Sam. In choosing Sam, they are really choosing all those who were involved in making the SVA happen.
