New look Gore District Ambassador

The Gore District Council is looking for a new Ambassador for the District.

We have revamped the Gore Gold Guitars Young Ambassador Awards, which will now simply be known as the Gore District Ambassador.

It’s just one of several changes made, based on feedback from previous contestants and others associated with the event, which will see a broader role for the new Ambassador.

Gore District Mayor Tracy Hicks said “this is a fantastic opportunity for all young people to not only promote the District but also develop their own life skills. We want to make this event open to as many people as possible”.

New Zealand Gold Guitar Awards convener Philip Geary said the committee was in favour of the name change “due to the anticipated extended role of the Ambassador”.

Gore District Council events and promotions coordinator Emma Carlé said entrants would this year be aligned with a business or community group, and there would be some fun challenges for entrants to complete before the final awards night on 21 May.

“An ambassador for the District needs to show a bit of drive, thinking out of the box and needs to be confident approaching people,’’ Ms Carlé said.

Part of the winner’s prize package will still be a trip to the Tamworth Country Music Festival in January 2016.

Anyone wanting more information can contact Gore District Council events and promotions coordinator Emma Carlé, phone 209 0388 or email
