New Times - Best Young Writer Award
Posted in News
New Times Intern Tasha Crumpler has been acknowledged by the Australasian Religious Press Association (ARPA) in their recent 2020 Awards announcement.
Tasha’s article ‘Cycling for Christ’ appeared in the February/March 2019 issue of New Times and she wrote about South Australian Matthew Glaetzer who became a champion professional cyclist. As a keen sportsman since his early teens he faced ill-health which also forced him to abandon his desire to become a pole vaulter. In his mid-teens he made a personal commitment to Christ and soon found success in triathlons.
We congratulate Tasha on her award and acknowledge her contribution to New Times during her internship at the Synod of SA office.
