Youth Voice Canterbury Youth Awards

Published: 07-Jul-2016

Waimakariri Youth Council recently attended the Youth Voice Canterbury Youth Awards.

Youth Voice Canterbury is a network of young people and youth participation groups supported to have a voice and get involved in decision making.

We congratulate Youth Council chairperson, Hannah Price who received the Canterbury Supreme Youth Award. It was great to have the support of our Mayor David Ayers and of Councillor Peter Allen at this event, which showcased the variety of successful Youth Development initiatives right across the Canterbury region.

Hannah achieves highly through leadership, community sporting and recreational achievements. She is the current chair of Waimakariri Youth Council, a role that she has held for approximately two years during which she has organised a scholarship programme, plan and run youth events in the district. Importantly, Hannah has ensured that Youth Council is a mechanism by which the voice of local young people is included in district-wide consultations about issues and opportunities that affect them.
