Judging has been completed for the Te Akatauira Recyclable Jewellery Competition but winners will not be announced until prize-giving night.
“Judging is completed but we want to save the announcement for prize-giving night on 11 May,” says competition organiser Jacqui Evans.
Evans says the prize-giving night will be for those who entered the competition as well as their teachers and parents.
“We wanted everyone who entered to be treated to a fun night at Café Salsa,” says Evans.
Evans says personal invitations will be sent out when school starts next week.
Co-organiser Paka Worthington says there will be a number of activities on the night.
“Entrants will be modelling their jewellery and this will be followed by the prize-giving ceremony and a quiz for the kids,” says Worthington.
Worthington says the jewellery competition was organised with multiple objectives including encouraging environmental awareness and resourcefulness, enhancing the artistic ability of children and education and awareness of business skills utilized in the sale of jewelry.
“We are really grateful to the Global Green Grants Fund for sponsoring the competition,” says Worthington.The competition is also supported by Te Ipukarea Society Inc, Koutu Nui, Paka’s Pearls and Café Salsa.
