National Youth Competitions 2018 - Results

Apr 21 2018

 

 National Youth Festival and Competitions 2018

 

 

This National Youth Festival and Competition is a four day event, the competitions are a challenging, fast paced and exciting time that is packed full of entertainment and activities designed to engage and stimulate our St John Cadets and spread awareness of the opportunities we provide young people.

The Festival is the major event for St John Youth in New Zealand.  As well as competitions, this year’s festival had a theme of ‘Arts’ and will included a Nelson Arts Showcase on Sunday, where participants will took part in arts-themed events.

For many of the festival participants, the competition day is the key event and what they have been focused on training for since last year. The three St John Regions (Northern, Central and South Island) are represented by twelve teams who will be tested (as teams and individuals) in first aid, healthcare, leadership, communications, and drill (marching).

”We put in hours of training in preparation for competitions, says Cascade
Price, St John National Cadet of the Year.  “We work really hard and are proud
of our accomplishments. Our youth programme aims to prepare Cadets/kids for life
and helps us to be confident in any situation. The most rewarding part for me is
watching younger Penguins/members go on to develop and grow in the programme.”nyf  

St John is super pleased to confirm the official results of the 2018 National Youth Competitions held in Nelson on Saturday 21 April 2018. It was also very pleasing to see that each Region came away with a prize at the National Youth Festival, the results were very close and all of our young people demonstrated outstanding fair play and postive team dynamics which are all essential ingredients to developIing sound leadership and participation attributes.
