New Awards for Youth to Work

New Awards for Youth to Work

Thursday, August 11, 2016

The South Taranaki Youth to Work Awards has lovely new awards made by award winning Waverley artists, Lisa and Jimi Walsh.

The Youth to Work Awards are a Mayors Taskforce For Jobs projects and are a celebration of young people and the employers and educators supporting them to achieve success.

South Taranaki District Council awards coordinator, Marcia Haigh, says the Awards, which are in their fourth year, needed an additional category with the Young Achievers section being split into two more comparable age groups.

“This meant an additional award had to be made and Lisa and Jimi Walsh (pictured above) from the Waverley Glass Studio offered to create new awards for all four categories at a much discounted rate.As the Youth to Work Awards are now established it made sense to have something that would last into the foreseeable future,” she says.

The closing date for nominations is Sunday 4 September and the celebration event will be held at the TSB Hub on Wednesday 2 November.
