Award winner aims at 4WD traction

June 18, 2014

A Wanganui teenager who won a national award said she was "humbled" by it.

"I didn't know what to say," said Year 12 Wanganui Girls' College student Renee Harrison.

Renee was handed the Outstanding Young Person of the Year award from the New Zealand Four Wheel Drive Association this month for her involvement in the sport.

"Renee has taken an interest in the sport since day one at the age of 10," father Grant Harrison said.

"The Wanganui club hosted round three of the 2014 trial series and Renee spent considerable time putting together a 10-minute promotional video which was posted on Facebook, in our business, and also at the local mall where we had Hamish Auret's new truck on display.

"She also spent about three hours per day with the truck for the eight days it was on display promoting the trial and handed out over 700 flyers for the event."
