Chris Hayes Memorial Award presented to


Zinaida Regan Campion was declared the winner of the Inaugural Chris Hayes Memorial Award in 2024. This prize, awarded by the adjudicator, is a special Encouragement Award paying for the 2025 Eisteddfod fees and other associated expenses for 2 people to attend the 2025 Warrnambool Eisteddfod, valued up to a total of $600.

Our former Convenor, the late Chris Hayes, passed away suddenly and tragically last year due to medical complications. Chris was a great believer in encouraging everyone to try their best in the Eisteddfod and was truly dedicated to the Aria. We were so pleased and honoured to have Claire Hayes, the daughter of Chris Hayes, with us on Saturday May 18 to present the Chris Hayes Memorial Award to Zinaiada. Both ladies are pictured to the right.
