Horowhenua Youth Excellence Scholarships nominations invited

15 August 2014

Nominations for Youth Excellence Scholarships offered by Horowhenua District Council are now invited.

There are 12 scholarships available, awarded across four categories:

1. Community Services – for recognition of outstanding service to the community

2. Excellence in Sport

3. Excellence in Academia

4. Excellence in Art and Culture

Each scholarship carries a once-off award of $250.

Council's Chief Executive David Clapperton says $250 may not be a large sum of money these days, but if it sews the seed of opportunity for a young person then it is money well spent.

"Our District has many deserving and talented youth. These awards are a fantastic way for us to publicly acknowledge the contributions they make, and encourage them to continue to deliver excellence,” he said.

“The Council first offered these awards in 2004 and after ten years I am still amazed by the continued achievements of local young people."

Application forms for Horowhenua Youth Excellence Scholarships can be found online at http://www.horowhenua.govt.nz/ or from Council's service centres in Levin, Foxton and Shannon.

Nominations close at 5.00pm on Friday 10 October.

The Youth Excellence Scholarships will be awarded at the Council's Civic Awards ceremony on

Thursday 25 November.
