NZCF/MYD Youth Ambassador's Award

The Ministry of Youth Development (MYD) is supporting The Big Sing (TBS) over the next three years in recognition of the ways in which TBS festivals offer development opportunities to student singers, conductors, composers and accompanists.

As the result of this partnership, choirs are cordially invited to apply for the ‘Spirit of the Festival’ Youth Ambassadors Award.

Entry is by way of a paragraph written and signed by the school principal explaining how the choir and its members exemplify the spirit of The Big Sing – how they encourage leadership, community participation, collaboration and innovation.

The Award winner in each region will receive a $250 prize, an award certificate and acknowledgment through our website, eBreve, social media and in the Finale programme.

Entries for the award should be sent to the regional coordinator within one week of the starting date for their regional festival. Dates and contact details are here.

Any enquiries should be made to The Big Sing National Coordinator Elizabeth Crayford elizabeth.crayford@nzcf.org.nz.
