The Star congratulates those from the local community who were recognised for their contribution in the New Year Honours 2022.

From education to agriculture, music to Maori language, they made their mark in countless ways.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said the New Zealanders recognised in the list represented the determination and service exemplified by so many during what had been another tough year due to the global Covid-19 pandemic.

"I never fail to be amazed by the outstanding things New Zealanders achieve, especially during the tough times, and I want to thank each and every person on this year’s list for the work they do to support their fellow New Zealanders in a wide variety of ways."

Our journalists are your neighbours

We are the South's eyes and ears in crucial council meetings, at court hearings, on the sidelines of sporting events and on the frontline of breaking news.

As our region faces uncharted waters in the wake of a global pandemic, Otago Daily Times continues to bring you local stories that matter.

We employ local journalists and photographers to tell your stories, as other outlets cut local coverage in favour of stories told out of Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch.
