Kia ora koutou,
After careful consideration, the RNZIH Education Trust has made the decision to proceed with the practical parts of the competition of the Young Horticulturist of the Year Event on February 22nd and 23rd but it has been decided that it is not safe to host the Gala Awards Dinner.
While this is disappointing for some, the COVID-19 challenges and potential risks, have driven this decision. For those who have already purchased dinner tickets, our team will b in touch with you to discuss your options.
The competition plays an important role in fostering the next generation of leaders and we would like to thank our sponsors for their on-going commitment. We will be inviting key sponsors to attend the presentation of the winners in an outdoor setting. More information on this will be communicated to sponsors in the coming days.
Every effort will be taken to ensure safety measures are in place and thank you for your understanding.
