A TOTAL of $10,000 will be at stake during the Nadroga Navosa Provincial Youth Sports tournament in May.
Nadroga Navosa Provincial youth co-ordinator Semi Tanikeli said the tournament had been in the pipeline for two years.
He said the aim of the games was to bring together youths from the 22 districts in the province and inform them of the options available to them.
"This is the first time we are having a sports tournament like this and it's about bringing together youths and informing them of the options available in terms of education and career," Tanikeli said.
"The money raised from the event will go towards renovating the provincial youth house and equipping it with computers.
"That way, students who are not able to afford computers or the internet can use the resources in the youth house for projects and school work.
"Also, we will use some of the money for village projects as well in the different districts."
He said prizes would also be given to the most active youth group, youth farmer of the year and the youth fisherman of the year.
"Also we will have competition in sevens rugby, netball and volleyball at Lawaqa Park in Sigatoka.
"Only for sevens rugby, we will have competitions in the under-17, under-18 and under-19 grades."
Tanikeli said they wanted to reach out to as many youths as possible during the two days.
"We are urging youths and parents of the 22 districts including Malolo and Vatulele to attend the tournament and support the youths of the province."
