Congratulations to Mariah Kirsopp who received the 2020 award ahead of 11 other applicants who each received Honourable Mentions. Several students attended the presentation via zoom.
The second project for our Rotary R100 Centenary celebrations culminated on Tuesday night in partnership with Deakin University – a special award for a student who displays the Rotary values.
All six clubs in the cluster and Whitehorse Rotary chipped in for a $1700 cash prize along with a special pin. We had nearly 20 students submit some fantastic applications which were assessed by a panel of four members within the organising committee.
Congratulations to Indigo Erez, a Bachelor of Psychology honours student, who was chosen as the winner of the inaugural award. The initiative is set to be continued in future years.
Here is Indigo with the champion of this initiative, MASH’s Richard Groom, the club’s president Val Crees, and Rotary District 9810 governor Alma Reynolds, at the presentation on Tuesday night.
