The awards were initiated by the Baha'i community in 2001, following the death of race relations activist Hedi Moani.

In his speech on Saturday, Te Ariki Te Puni of Palmerston North Boys High School challenged New Zealanders to reflect on the true meaning of the country's national anthem and urged people to stand in solidarity against racism rather than be bystanders.

Te Ariki was one of 150 students, in regional heats around the country, who spoke on the subject of racism in New Zealand and the need for people to stand together in race unity.
