Rising Stars is an awesome kaupapa created by Whakaatu Whanaunga Trust, that acknowledges and celebrates the achievements of rangatahi in the Opotiki District.
There was a real need for young people to be showcased
in a good light in the community and thus,
Rising Stars was born.
The area is blessed with talented individuals and groups, and recognising this helps young people continue to strive for greatness, and allows for us to watch stars on the rise.
