Te Taura Whiri i te Reo Maori (The Maori Language Commission) celebrates 25 years of existence in 2012 and to celebrate it has chosen "Arohatia te Reo" as the theme for Maori Language Week 2012.

Arohatia te Reo means to Cherish the Language. We want you to share your interpretation of Arohatia te Reo with us here at Good Morning.

Video entries can be as diverse as a waiata, a sketch, an artwork, a conversation or  any video that reflects the theme. We will play out our favourite videos during Maori Language Week and two winners will receive a fabulous Multi Kai Cooker - not just a hangi cooker, its a hot plate, BBQ, smoker and steamer.

Two runners up will each receive a Maori designed embroidered wall hanging and there are also five kete, by master weaver Leisha Conrad, to be won.

So get inspired and get filming! Upload to youtube and click below to paste the link and enter your details. Your uploads should be no longer than 1min.

Competition closes at 12 noon, Monday 16th July.

Its easy to win! Arohatia te Reo!
