Verse of The Day
“I a koutou mahi katoa kaua te amuamu, te tautohetohe; Kia kore ai koutou e whaikupuria, kia tapatahi ai, he tamariki kohakore na te Atua, i waenganui o te whakatupuranga tutu, parori ke, kei roto nei koutou i a ratou e tiaho ana hei rama i te ao; Kia mau pu ki te kupu o te ora; kia hari ai ahau a te ra o te Karaiti, kihai ahau i oma noa, kihai i mahi noa.” (Philippians 2:14-16)

Shining stars: The contestants in the Lions Young Ambassador Awards, Callum Harris, left, Michelle McCabe, Gemma Coutts, Duncan Lamont Brown, Darone Diamond, Ngaia Copeland and Hayley Corney, all won acclaim.

Whangarei’s best and brightest young leaders have been recognised in the Lions Young Ambassador Awards.

Seven Whangarei teenagers took part in the competition, which aims to endorse the achievements of secondary school students.

Top prize of $1000 was won by Whangarei Girls High School head girl Michelle McCabe.

But the judges praised all the contestants for being inspiring all-rounders during the tough selection process.

Each had to prepare a CV which was judged on their community service, school leadership roles, sporting involvement and academic record.

The selection also included a five-minute interview with a panel of three judges.

Contestants then had to perform a five-minute speech in front of 70 people at the awards night, hosted by Lions Tutukaka at Ngunguru Sports Complex on Tuesday, September 22.
