WINNER:
Catherine Hutton

RNZ

Judges’ comment:
‘Catherine's entries displayed a strong understanding of the failings of NZ's funded family care system. We were impressed by the strength of her proposal to investigate the frustrations and injustices currently suffered by hundreds of NZ families battling to care for their disabled loved ones. We trust that Radio New Zealand will allow Catherine the time and scope to investigate this issue fully as we believe it is of significant importance.’
