Victorian Young Achiever Awards nominations open  Printer Friendly

Nominations are open for the Victorian Young Achievers Awards, and now is the perfect time to acknowledge the many achievements of Benalla’s young people, according to Benalla Rural City Council Mayor Cr Barbara Alexander.

“We saw a phenomenal response to a call for nominations for last year’s local Get Out There Youth Awards, and it would be wonderful to see that repeated in the Victorian Young Achievers Awards,” Cr Alexander said.

Cr Alexander said that there were many young high achievers in Benalla and it would be a great inspiration to them and their peers if their efforts were to be recognised in the awards, which are open to people up to 28 years of age.

“So many young people are contributing significantly to our community through volunteering, their work and cultural activities,” she said.

“During the year in my role as Mayor I have met some exceptional young people, who are not only smart but compassionate as well, and who show this by running events and supporting causes to make the world a better place.”

Nominations are open until 22 January 2014, and the categories include:
