Run in conjunction with the TrustPower Wairoa 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 Wairoa District Council.

To be considered for the TrustPower Youth Community Spirit Award students had to have given service to school or community projects, treated others with care and respect and been a good ambassador for the school and the Wairoa region. 

TrustPower Community Relations Coordinator Suzi Luff says Oscar is a talented and generous young man who is involved in plenty of school and community events and activities.

“Oscar is a committed and involved student and has been since he started at Wairoa College when he was Year 7. 

He is Wairoa College’s head boy, where he dedicates considerable time and energy to his duties and he’s a great leader in all senses of the word. 

Oscar mentors a junior class, he is the student rep on the Board of Trustees and he plays for his school’s hockey team. 

Oscar is seen as an organiser, leader and supporter of others. He participates in all activities, leading by example and is well-respected by staff and students at his school. 

Oscar is a CACTUS leader, where not only has he graduated, but he has returned as part of the support crew, voluntarily fulfilling the role of mentor and supporter. 

Out in the community, Oscar is a member of the Wairoa Search and Rescue group,” says Miss Luff. 

For winning the Award, Oscar received a framed certificate and $500 prize money, with $250 going to Oscar personally and $250 being given to a community group of his choice. 

Oscar chose to donate $250 to the Wairoa Young Achievers Trust, which he credits to helping him with his successes.
