Polyfest competition

Malo e lei,

Massey University is proud to once again sponsor the Tongan Stage at Polyfest. This year we have a couple of exciting initiatives for students and support teams who pour so much passion into Polyfest.

laptop We’d like to encourage students to dream big and to think about University as a pathway to success. We’ve designed a competition for students around our colleges of Health, Business, Science and Humanities and Social Sciences.

By dropping into the Massey tent and taking one of the simple College quizzes, students can go into the draw to win one of four HP Stream 11" Blue laptops – perfect for school work.

Thanks to Air New Zealand we are also able to recognise the hard work done by so many to support Polyfest teams.  

One unsung hero will win flights for two to Tonga on Air New Zealand.  

Tonga Students and supporters can go facebook to tell us who they think deserves this awesome prize. They just need to post a photo of Pasifika@Massey at Polyfest (signage or people) with the name of their nominee and why their nominee has earned a fantastic trip. (See competition details below.)

Massey University understands the importance of Pasifika culture and Polyfest and we look forward to hosting you at Polyfest 2017. Check out our Pasifika@Massey facebook page for updates, videos and information.

Mālō ‘aupito.
