Pride Awards Trust

June 24, 2014

The Pride Awards Trust is calling for individuals and organisations to submit nominations for the fifth annual Wellington Pride Awards for young people.

The annual Pride Awards ceremony provides an opportunity for exceptional young people from the Wellington region to be recognised for their achievements and contributions to their community. The focus of the awards is on young people who are often unrecognised for their achievements. By rewarding their achievements we aim to give these young people the recognition they deserve and put them into the spotlight so that they can inspire their peers and
the wider community.

There are six award categories, with a Junior (5-12 years old) and a Senior Award (13-17 years old) for each category.

This year’s award ceremony will be held at Paramount Theatre on Sunday, 19 October 2014

where winners will receive their awards and an excellent prize package. Nominations are open to young people between the ages of 5 and 17 years old (as at 31 July), living in the Wellington region (including Kapiti Coast and Wairarapa). Nominations close on the 31 July.

To nominate a young person simply complete a nomination form on the Pride Award Trust website: www.prideawards.org.nz and submit it online or by post.

On Saturday, 5 July a Pool Party will also be held as a fundraising event and to celebrate the opening of the awards nomination period. The Pool Party will be held at H2O Extreme from 7-9pm with a ticket price of only $8 per child and free entry for all adults accompanying children.

The night will involve team activities/competitions for prizes, music from a live DJ, a sausage sizzle and all the great H2O facilities including slides, river rapids, waves and inflatables.

The Pride Awards would not be possible without the generous support from principal sponsors, Datacom, and Interislander; and principal media partners, The Edge, The Breeze, More FM and Mai FM.
