Waimakariri Member of Parliament Clayton Cosgrove is pleased to announce entries are now open for the Waimakariri Youth Parliament Representative for 2000.
Mr Cosgrove invites all young people in the Waimakariri Electorate between 16 and 18 years to enter. The winner will get the chance to sit in the Youth Parliament in Wellington for two days in August.

Mr Cosgrove said “This is a great opportunity for future voters to see how their Parliament works. The Youth Parliament encourages good communication, sharing experiences and being aware of wider issues in the community in which they live.”
Students wishing to enter are requested to present a 200 word statement for judging.
The topic they are to address in their statement is:
“How do you plan to represent the young people of Waimakariri in the Youth Parliament? What issue would you address on their behalf?”
