This may be a little hard to read but the story from the newspaper cutting below is about how Eltham acknowledge triple success with presentations for the town and its people who have made their mark on the national stage.
- Kaponga's Shirley Hazlewood who was named a semi-finalist in the Kiwibanks New Zealander of the Year Awards.
- The Eltham Community Development group received the runner up plaque for the Best Professional Mural 2010 at the Resene Mural Masterpieces 2010 Competition.
- Eltham had its own plaque for being semi-finalist for Community of the year Awards. Significant events that went towards Eltham being a semi-finalist were 125th Jubilee, filming of Predicament, the downhill cheese race, and the world record breaking cheese scone, walkway improvements, and the $300,000 grant for Computers In Homes.
