Bike Taupō Advocacy Prepares To Represent Taupō District
19 March 2012
In just a few days the Bike Taupō Advocacy will be going head to head with the country’s best and brightest voluntary groups and organisations at the TrustPower National Community Awards.
The 2011 TrustPower National Community Awards are being held in the Ashburton District from 23 - 25 March 2012.
Bike Taupō Advocacy is representing the Taupō District at the National Awards – an honour they won after being named Supreme Winner at the TrustPower Taupō District Community Awards last year.
Joining the Bike Taupō Advocacy at the National Awards will be representatives from 24 other voluntary groups or organisations from around the country that were named Supreme Winner at their regional TrustPower Community Awards.
At the Nationals, Bike Taupō Advocacy will give an eight minute presentation on what the group has achieved and why they deserve the title of TrustPower National Community Award Supreme Winner. Bike Taupō Advocacy will be judged on that presentation, along with a 1,000 word summary of the organisation.
The presentations will take place on Saturday 24 March at the Methven Heritage Centre, with the Winner and Runner-Up being announced at an Awards dinner that evening being held at Terrace Downs.
TrustPower Community Relations Coordinator Suzi Luff says the Bike Taupō Advocacy have put together a fantastic presentation.
“The Taupō community should be really proud of what the Bike Taupō Advocacy has achieved. They will make wonderful ambassadors for your community at the TrustPower National Community Awards.
Attending the National Awards from Bike Taupō Advocacy will be Thomas Schwarz and Cath Oldfield, along with Taupō District Mayor Rick Cooper and his wife Lynne.
The TrustPower National Community Award Supreme Winner will take home $2,500, a framed certificate, a trophy and a $500 voucher from Exult, a leading and specialist training provider for the community sector. The Runner Up will receive $1,500, a framed certificate and a $200 voucher from Exult.
