Dr Lance O’Sullivan’s Moko Foundation extends selected winners to attend UN conference
Twelve young people have been selected to attend a United Nations conference in New York with Doctor Lance O’Sullivan's Moko Foundation.
The announcement was made after several hundred video applications were submitted via social media.
The Moko Foundation ran a 48-hour campaign to originally choose two candidates to travel with them to The US.
With over 300+ applications, successful applications were extended from two recipients to 14.
With all flights and accommodation covered, the only prerequisite for those wanting to partake in the two-week trip was a passion to advocate indigenous Māori issues.
The conference will take place from April 13 to 22 in New York City.
