Ashburton Youth Council have extended the closing date of applications for the 2017 Youth Council from Friday 21 October until Monday 7 November 2016.

The extension will help ensure school students are able to submit their applications around end-of-year formalities.

Ashburton Youth Councillor Mel Haworth says the last few months of school are typically very busy for most school students, and wants to give all potential candidates the opportunity to get their applications in.

“As the school year starts to wrap up, many young people are extra busy with exams, projects and other end of year activities,” she says. “AYC want to make sure anyone thinking about applying for the 2017 Youth Council has enough time to think about their nomination and really consider what contribution they believe they would make as new Youth Councillors.”

Application forms for the 2017 Ashburton Youth Council are available from our website. For more information, visit the Ashburton Youth Council Facebook page or the Ashburton District Council website.
