Do you know a young person aged 12 – 25 who is making a big difference in our community?
If so, nominate them for a Geelong Youth Award. This could give your young person the spark they need to reach their potential.
Known as the biggest celebration of young people in our region, the annual awards aim to recognise and celebrate young people who have made and/or are currently making significant contributions in the areas of leadership, community work, personal care for others, social justice, sport and the arts.
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 and are open to anyone between 12 and 25 years who lives, works, learns or plays in the City of Greater Geelong.
On 7 June, 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 17 May 2019.
Don’t delay – get your nomination in today and stay tuned for the announcement of nominations and celebration dates for the next Youth Awards.
