The GirlBoss Awards are brought to you by the team at

GirlBoss New Zealand

Our mission is to empower the next generation of female leaders in New Zealand by celebrating their achievements and inspiring others to do the same.

The GirlBoss Awards offers two categories: the Nationwide Awards and the Canterbury Awards. The Nationwide Awards are for young women aged 11-18 from anywhere in New Zealand, while the Canterbury Awards are exclusively for those who reside in the Canterbury region. Canterbury residents who apply for the Nationwide Awards will be automatically entered into the Canterbury Awards scheme.

The GirlBoss Awards highlight young women who are defying stereotypes and creating positive change in their communities. We're on the hunt for inspiring young leaders, facilitators, role models, and innovators who are pushing the boundaries and blazing new trails.

At the GirlBoss Awards, we believe that every young woman has the potential to make a difference. We're here to celebrate and recognize their achievements, and to inspire the next generation of trailblazers.


If you know a young woman who deserves to be celebrated, nominate her for the GirlBoss Awards today!
