|Salem giving his speech.|
Great news, Salem won the Senior Creative Achievement and Innovation Award at the Pride Awards yesterday which were held at the Paramount Theatre yesterday in Wellington.
The Pride Awards recognise and celebrate the successes, achievements and contributions of young people in the Wellington region.
|Before the awards.|
Salem was absolutely thrilled especially as he wasn't expecting to win and to make it more special for him, his award was presented to him by Amanda Skoog who is the managing director of the Royal New Zealand Ballet.
Salem made a great speech, he was very confident and looked great in a suit and tie.
|He really can't help himself :-)|
Salem received a trophy, a framed certificate and a travel voucher from The InterIslander, which is fantastic as Salem has never been down to the South Island yet, and a gift card from Westfield.
It was a great event, plenty of entertainment and food afterwards.
All the award winners truly deserved their awards, all very inspirational young people.
