UDIA NSW Roy Sheargold Scholarship Winner Announced
The Roy Sheargold Scholarship was established in 2016 by UDIA NSW in partnership with Sheargold’s Managing Director, Michael Sheargold, to honour his grandfather and founder of the business, Roy Sheargold. The inaugural winner, as announced at the UDIA Christmas Lunch, is up-and-coming AECOM Engineer, Katrie Lowe of Sydney.
This scholarship is designed to allow industry professionals to reach the next level by using the award to conduct research or further education. In receiving the award from Michael, Ms Lowe was thrilled to accept the scholarship saying she will use the opportunity to embark upon a global research expedition to further benefit her skills with innovations to tackle the challenges facing Sydney such as housing affordability and sustainable engineering, just as Roy Sheargold did over his many years active in the industry.
An encouraging number of high calibre applications were received, and it is envisaged that this opportunity will, in the ensuing years, produce some excellent results for the entire Australian development industry.
Vista Park Competition “The Grove – Your Perfect Day”
Sheargold recently held a competition at Vista Park, our masterplanned community in Wongawilli, where we asked new residents in the Grove community how they would see their perfect day living at The Grove.
All entries were creative and heartfelt and were of such a high calibre that our judging panel could not pick a clear winner between the two top entries. We congratulate the Hoyle and Withers families as joint winners. They now have the equally hard task of choosing their prize, with a choice between:
• $2,000 Freedom Furniture voucher
• $2,000 landscape voucher
• Year’s supply of Hoyts movie tickets
We would like to congratulate all the entrants and thank them for taking the time and making the effort to submit some very wonderful concepts of their Perfect Day.

Sheargold Managing Director, Michael Sheargold, said “The response from residents in the community is heartwarming and indicative of a great community spirit.”
Vista Park intends to host further community engaging exercises like this as we see more residents calling this masterplanned community their home.
