Trustpower Youth Community Spirit Award
Marlborough High schools have been asked again to submit a nomination for this year’s Trustpower Youth Community Spirit Award. This Award recognises Year 13 students who are actively involved in their school and community – one of our future leaders and volunteers.
The judging criteria are as follows:
- Contributed widely as a student to their college/school
- Given service to school or community projects
- Developed good relationships, treating others with respect and care
- Been a good ambassador for the college/school and the Marlborough region
To make a nomination please complete the form, and return along with a short endorsement letter (which acts like a character reference of the student) to Mrs Des Forges (Ms Stewart’s Personal Assistant) by Friday August 9th, 4pm.
The candidate chosen to go forward by the College will then be invited to speak with the Marlborough judging panel, made up of representatives from Council, the community and Trustpower. These judges will also be deciding which local community groups will receive the Trustpower Marlborough Community Awards which celebrate and reward voluntary and community groups.
You are welcome to enter a group in these awards too (think: school PTAs, kapa haka groups providing entertainment for the community, sports clubs; performance troupes, environmental groups, cadets, etc. etc.). It only takes five minutes and it can be done online at www.trustpower.co.nz/communityawards .
The Trustpower Youth Community Spirit Award will be presented at the Trustpower Marlborough Community Awards on Wednesday 29 October. All finalists for the Trustpower Youth Community Spirit Award will be recognised at this function.
