“Global Kids NZ” Tops Air Awards

Two of Otago Access Radio’s younger broadcasters were the big winners at Otago Access Radio’s biennial Air Awards held at Burns Hall, First Church on 7 November.

Daniel Tucker (12) and Jayden “TJ” Jesudhass (11) host Global Kids NZ which airs on the station’s Youth Zone each Wednesday at 4pm. The programme featured interviews, stories and music, with an emphasis on cultural diversity.
An audience of more than 110 gathered to celebrate the achievements of the station’s 180 locally-based volunteer broadcasters, and were entertained by the Otago-Southland Chinese Association Lion Dancers.
Public Service Association assistant secretary Jeff Osborne presented the PSA Supreme Award trophy and cash prize to Daniel and Jayden, whose programme was described as ambitious and impressive by the awards judging panel.

Young Leaders in a Changing World was a 20 part series showcasing the wide range of interests, talents, and opinions of young people in Dunedin. Our 18 participants told us their stories, and talked about how they are actively involved with the things that they are passionate about.

The final two episodes were a chance for the participants to come together and discuss some of the recurring themes that are identified throughout the series.

Young Leaders in a Changing World was an Otago Access Radio project supported by the Ministry of Youth Development and NZ on Air.
