Staff and Trustees of Graeme Dingle Foundation Southland came together to celebrate and watch the live streamed Graeme Dingle Foundation National Excellence Awards on Monday afternoon. Michael Lee, Chair of the Graeme Dingle Foundation Southland Board said it was “such a great opportunity to hear the contribution of our programmes to the lives of tamariki and rangatahi through their stories”.
The annual Excellence Awards began life as the Project K Outstanding Student Award. They were first hosted by Governor General, Dame Sylvia Cartwright, 20 years ago. The Awards provide an opportunity to honour and celebrate outstanding young New Zealanders and contributions across all of the Foundation’s programmes throughout New Zealand. Southland Kiwi Can Coordinator Jen Jacques was a finalist for the Outstanding Programme Coordinator Award.
