Murwillumbah East student Josh Wentworth was recently awarded one of the most prestigious prizes in the Tweed Valley Festival of Performing Arts.
Josh’s talent and skill as a drummer were recognised by the adjudicators and organisers of the festival. As a result, he was one of two students chosen to receive the coveted Tweed District Student Award.
To be eligible to receive the award, which is sponsored by an anonymous donor, students must be residents of the Tweed shire and show great potential in the areas of speech and drama, music or dance. The winners receive a trophy, a medal and a cheque for $1,000 to support them in their chosen field of study.
Josh and his family were thrilled to hear that Josh’s hard work and dedication to his music had been recognised among such a talented field of competitors and his school community were very proud and excited to celebrate his success.
