New category for Asians in the Bay awards 2014

A Best Asian Secondary School Student category has been added to the Asians in the Bay awards.

The awards are into their 3rd year, and will again recognise Professional Individuals and Asian businesses that are making a difference in the community. Groups and organisations that have helped promote their own particular culture and contributed significantly to the Hawkes Bay economy will also be acknowledged.

Multicultural Association Hawke’s Bay President Sook Hua Lee says “The awards have been extremely well received by the Asian community and will step up another notch with the addition of a category that will recognise our brightest students. Many young people from the Asian community perform very well academically and the committee felt it was time this was recognised at the awards.”

Sook Hua Lee says “The awards promote unity, cooperation and the creation of a culture of excellence within Asian business and professional communities. The awards also give nominees a chance to stand back and have a good look at the way their business or organisation is operating. A nomination could be the beginning of change in the future.”

Awards will be presented in six categories; best Asian restaurant, best Asian practicing professional, best Asian business, best Asian community group, best Asian community event and best Asian Secondary School Student.

The Asians in the Bay awards evening will be held at the Ellwood Function Centre on Monday August 11 2014. The guest speaker will be Prof Paul Spoonley, Distinguished Pro Vice Chancellor from Massey University.
