Prizes for art work
Local children have won prizes in a district-wide colouring competition.
Waikato East Life Education Trust and the Hauraki District Libraries held the competition during the October school holidays and the best entries have won prizes.
Waihi, Paeroa and Ngatea libraries received 42 entries from year one to year seven children.
Secretary of Waikato East Life Education Trust and librarian assistant Corinna Fairburn said the event was a promotional venture between the Trust and Hauraki District Libraries.
“The event was to promote the educational principles that the Life Education Trust and libraries in general share,” she said.
Entries were judged by two community members before the prizegiving took place at the Waihi library in the last weekend of October.
Presentation of award packages — Life Education items and books — was done by Karen Wickliffe, Waihi libraries team leader and mascot Harold the giraffe.
Winners of the competition were Nathan, Ngawaina, Teijarlee Jones and Riley Dixon.
Runners-up were Julius Pakinga, Kate Standen, Jorga Potter and Ani Lewis. The competition was the first of many more to come.
The young winners receive their prizes.
