The Award was presented at the TrustPower Invercargill Southland Community Awards held tonight (Monday 1 October) at the Civic Theatre. 

Run in conjunction with the TrustPower Invercargill Southland Community Awards, the TrustPower Youth Community Spirit Award recognises secondary school students’ service to the school and the community. The Award is jointly run by TrustPower and the Invercargill City Council and the Southland District Council. 

To be considered for the TrustPower Youth Community Spirit Award students had to have contributed widely to their school and community while developing good relationships and showing respect and care for others.

TrustPower Community Relations representative Jess Somerville says Adam is the type of student who simply gives and expects nothing in return. 

“Adam has embraced school life at Aurora College whole-heartedly and as head boy he takes great pride in representing his school. His leadership skills are regularly called upon as he leads school assemblies and he is often called in to mentor and work with junior students.

Through his many leadership roles at school Adam has been working closely with the Primary Feeder School and the City Council to put more pride and community into South Invercargill through the project “Clean and Beautiful Kingswell Creek.” 

Out in the community Adam has been an active member of scouts for many years, he volunteers at Number 10 the Youth ‘One-stop-shop’ and is also working with the YMCA as a youth facilitator on the Level One Youth Leadership. He plans to use this experience and skills to pursue a career as a social worker so he can fully support members of his community.

Adam impressed the judges with his extensive involvement in his school and wider community. It was clear he is a positive role model who is very supportive of his peers and willingly gives his time to help others. 

For winning the Award Adam will receive a framed certificate and $500 prize money, with $250 going to Adam personally and $250 being given to a community group or organisation of his choice. 

Adam chose to donate the $250.00 to the Number 10.
