About 50 ''absolutely competitive'' St John cadets patched up, resuscitated and comforted patients at the Alexandra Holiday Park yesterday during the St John Youth area competition.
St John District Youth manager Lynne Rae said children aged 9 to 18 had come from all over Central Otago, including Wanaka and Queenstown, for the competition.
The top scorers compete in the South Island competition in Kaiapoi next month.
''These kids are all really competitive ... absolutely competitive.''
