Walk of Fame criteria

The Walk of Fame is a series of plaques placed in Oxford St, Levin, to recognise and commemorate those people of distinction who were born, or educated, or lived for any length of period, or who died, in the Horowhenua.

There are four categories of people:

1)     Any pioneer, early settler, Maori identity, local identity, prominent businessman or woman, local celebrity or other identifiable distinction who would be recognised by the community as having distinctive heritage value;

2)     Any person who has international recognition or reputation in any activity, that reflects well on Horowhenua and New Zealand;

3)     Those people who have represented New Zealand (at a senior level) in any sporting activity, and those people who have officiated in any sporting test match between two countries;

4)     Any New Zealand person who has served in conflicts in New Zealand or overseas and would be recognised by the RSA as having distinctive recognition or reputation.

The Trustees always welcome suggestions. The Trustees have the final say as to whether someone meets the criteria. Those who do not meet the criteria may well be included in our site under "People".
