Children's Choice Award
Children are invited to join the festivities too. Children have a special voting card only for children. All children’s votes for New Zealand Rose of the Year are tallied to award the prestigious Children’s Choice Award.
Children’s Rose Programme
The children’s programme allows primary aged school children to engage in a horticulture based EOTC (Education Outside the Classroom) programme. Trustees and Rosarians work with the children in their schools and onsite in the Hamilton Gardens to teach them about growing, caring, cutting and showing roses.
The children’s exhibition will be held in alongside the adult display in the Hamilton Gardens Pavilion.
