Zonta win­ners

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

Two young women have been recog­nised for their lead­er­ship by Zonta In­ter­na­tional.

Laura Good­man and Jes­sica Fen­ton won Zonta’s Young Women in Pub­lic Af­fairs award for the Welling­ton re­gion.

They re­ceived cer­tifi­cates and a $ 500 cheque at the cer­e­mony, hosted by Porirua mayor Nick Leggett last week.

Porirua City coun­cil­lor Bron­wyn Kropp, a pre­vi­ous win­ner of the award, was the guest speaker at the pre­sen­ta­tion.

The Zonta award is aimed at women un­der 19 who in­tend to go to univer­sity or polytech this year.

Jes­sica, from Welling­ton, and Laura, from Pare­mata, demon­strated lead­er­ship qual­i­ties in their aca­demics and within their com­mu­nity, Zonta spokes­woman Michelle Robin­son said.

The pair join win­ners from other clubs around New Zealand to find a na­tional win­ner to take part in the In­ter­na­tional Young Woman in Pub­lic Af­fairs award.

The New Zealand win­ner will re­ceive $US1000 from the Zonta Foun­da­tion.
