POET wins at the 2021 Waikato Sport & Active Recreation Awards

Perry Outdoor Education Trust are proud to be winners of the Commitment to Youth Engagement category at the 2021 Waikato Sport & Active Recreation Awards.

The newly developed Waikato Sport & Active Recreation Awards encouraged nominations from those in the community who go above and beyond to deliver programmes and initiatives that meet the needs of the participant and help create a more active region. POET was nominated in the new category Commitment to Youth Engagement: Those people or programmes who support young people (0-24), and help to grow the numbers of young people being more active.

Nominations were judged by local judges from the sector – athlete, disability sport advisor and Sky Sport presenter Honey Hireme-Smiler, commentator and Waikato radio broadcaster Graeme ‘Mintie’ Mead and Waikato River Trails General Manager Glyn Wooller.
