Extraordinary seven

SEVEN children who stood out in their communities were recognised by the Fiji Children's Award Committee and received their awards from the President of Fiji Ratu Epeli Nailatikau yesterday.

The recipients were excited to receive such recognition for their selfless service.

The Fiji Children's Award is a sub-committee of Vision Fiji. Vision Fiji chairperson, Lynda Tabuya said they conceived the idea for a national award for children as a way of raising the visibility of children, celebrating their achievements and promoting national pride.

"It also aims to inspire the same selflessness in our children and members of the wider community," Ms Tabuya said.

She said Fiji was entering an era where children would become role models for their generation. "No matter what we go through, we can still serve others," she said.
