TrustPower in partnership with local district and city councils recognize and reward service to communities.  The Youth Community Spirit Award is open to Year 13 students who are actively involved in their school and community.  Entries are judged by a panel made up of representatives from Trustpower, the local council and community.  This year William Menzies was awarded co-winner in recognition of his work within the school, as Coach of the Mixed Hockey Team and commitment to the Dannevirke Car Club as organizer of the Tararua Road Gravel Sprint Event.  William donated his proportion of the prize to the Dannevirke High School SADD Committee.
