Who should I nominate for the NZ Open Source Awards?

So nominations are open for the New Zealand Open Source Awards and I have to decide who I should nominate. There doesn't seem to be anything stopping me nominating several, but picking one contender and throwing my weight behind them seems like the right thing to do. The ideas I've come up with so far are:

Kiharoa Dear for excellent work in getting firefox, thunderbird and open office working in Māori contexts:

Standards New Zealand for sanity control in the OOXML fiasco:

Hagley Community College for rolling out Ubuntu in a secondary school:

Who should I nominate? Is there someone I've missed?
