Selwyn MP congratulates Youth Council on award win
Local MP Amy Adams has congratulated the Selwyn Youth Council for receiving a 2016 Youth Award in the Youth Group category.
“I am delighted that the Youth Council has been recognised for the outstanding contribution it has made to the community.
“These awards recognise young people doing great things, and also those who support or champion young people,” says Ms Adams.
“All up there are nine award categories, which celebrate qualities such as leadership and the creation of positive change in areas from the arts and culture to sport and the environment.
“There are 45 award recipients from around New Zealand, so it was great to see the Selwyn community represented amongst the award winners at Parliament recently.
“A large number of nominations was received for this year’s awards, which shows there’s no shortage of young people out there doing great work, as well as others prepared to give young people the support they need to help them reach their goals,” says Ms Adams.
Details of award recipients and more information about the 2016 Youth Awards are available on the Ministry of Youth Development’s website.
