The Spark Business Stella Awards 2022 is about celebrating the businesses in the Taupo region and the resilience they have shown over the last 2 years. The challenges have kept mounting and businesses have ducked, dodged, upskilled, downsized, pivoted or even oscillated to keep things going through these trying times. To align with this year’s theme, the categories and the awards programme format have been updated to encompass a light-hearted and easily digestible approach. The categories have more focus on areas of achievement rather than business size or industry, to encourage anyone to throw their name in the hat.
There will be both team awards, for businesses that have worked together to stand tall in the face of adversity and star performer awards for individuals who have shown themselves to be the shining lights of the company.
Entry for the awards programme is open to businesses operating in the Taupo district, including Turangi and Mangkino areas.
