Australasia’s fastest sprinter (under 18 years, over 100m) used a Hastings Youth Council Grant to help her get to the competition at which she scored the win.
Georgia Hulls was one of 18 who received a grant of between $250 and $1000 last year. The fund is administered by Hastings Youth Council. Nominations have been called for again this year, with a closing date of November 4.
Giving their peers a helping hand to achieve their goals is one of the parts of being on the Youth Council that the members enjoy most, says Hastings District Council youth co-ordinator Paddy Steffert.
Last year 18 teens received between $250 and $1000 to help them reach their dreams. The funds went toward a wide range of activities, from canoe polo and softball, to music and athletics.
Hulls was one of those to reach real heights with the help of a grant, achieving national headlines for her win at the Australian Junior Athletics Championships. See http://tinyurl.com/z6qutwe
