As part of the Sister Cities NZ Conference this year (May, 2016), held in Nelson, at the Sister City Awards Dinner, NZCFS Nelson Branch’s Immediate Past President, Christine Ward, received a well-deserved award from the sponsor, Air New Zealand, for the “Best Youth Education or School Project”. The prize was ‘air travel with Air New Zealand to the value of $1500’. (For the other award winners and runners up, click here.)
For the Sister Cities NZ Conference each year, Sister Cities NZ invites submissions on Sister City projects from around the country and, in conjunction with the Nelson City Council, the NZCFS Nelson Branch entered their 2015 Huangshi-Nelson Art Exchange Project.
Great news indeed for Christine and all the people from Nelson Branch who lent a hand with making the exhibition such a success during China Week last year (2015).
