Every day for more than 100 years, teams of Plunket volunteers and nurses have worked together in communities providing innovative solutions and delivering highly valued services to New Zealand families.
Celebrating exceptional teams
Established in 2003, the Eyebright Awards are named after New Zealand’s Eyebright flower Tūtūmako because it flourishes in a variety of terrain and conditions. Winning teams have access to a grant of up to $1500 to use towards a project that benefits the community. This year teams can enter online, by printing off the nomination form or even by video footage (conditions apply).
Plunket Star Sponsors Wattie’s and Huggies - with 36 collective years of partnership - celebrate these dedicated teams throughout the country with the Eyebright Awards.
“The Awards have evolved into a prestigious form of recognition for exceptional Plunket teams. Wattie’s and Huggies really want to recognise the contribution Plunket makes to New Zealand families and our communities,” says Carey Wilken, Group Marketing Manager Nutrition Solutions at Wattie’s.
Grant Hartley, Head of Marketing Kimberly-Clark goes on to say “Huggies and Wattie’s are proud to be able to recognise the hard work and dedication of Plunket teams. We value these awards and look forward to celebrating many more with Plunket.”

How the Eyebright Awards workThere are two categories in which Plunket teams can be nominated for the Eyebright Awards, these are the ‘Working Together’ Team Award and the ‘Innovation’ Team Award.
Nominations for Eyebright Awards are invited from within the Plunket community nationally, and entries are judged by a panel from Plunket’s Māori Health, Operations and Quality & Development leadership.
