Nominations are now open for the biggest celebration of young people in our region – the Geelong Youth Awards.
Do you know a young person aged 12 – 25 who is making a difference in the areas of education, leadership, community work, sport, culture, arts, environment or youth development in Greater Geelong?
If so, nominate them for a Geelong Youth Award. This could give your young person the spark they need to reach their potential.
Youth Portfolio Councillor Jan Farrell said the awards acknowledged the many remarkable young people in our community: “There are so many young people doing amazing things in our community and it’s wonderful to see them recognised through these awards. I love seeing young people following their interests and passions and, as we’ve seen in the past, many of them go on to be very successful in their chosen fields,” she says.
Nominees can be nominated in a variety of categories including Arts and music, Community Citizenship, Leadership/positive role model, Social justice (advocacy), Sport, or the Young Carer category.
The winners will be announced at a gala event at The Pier on 1 June 2018. All nominees will receive a certificate and award winners will receive a personal trophy and a $500 contribution to support their ongoing interests and education.
It’s quick and easy to nominate, simply visit www.youthcan.vic.gov.au and tell us what they’re doing. Nominations close on 29 April 2018.
