On behalf of the Youth Affairs Council of Western Australia, I am pleased to announce the WA Youth Awards 2017.
Each year for 18 years, the WA Youth Awards have provided a platform to recognise our most amazing, inspirational and dedicated young people. These are young people committed to their community, helping others and thinking outside of the box.
We know that young people don’t often get recognised for the contributions that they make to the community, and our community often falls back into the stereotype that young people are disengaged and disinterested. This event, and the young people here that are recognised at it, prove that stereotype to be very, very wrong.
This years awards fall into the following categories:
- The Commissioner for Children and Young People Participate Award
- The ECU Community Leadership Award
- The Perth Theatre Trust Cultural Endeavors Award
- The Hope Community Services Active Participation Award
- The Minister for Youth’s Outstanding Youth Worker
- The MercyCare Organisational Achievement (Large)
- The RUAH Organisational Achievement (Small)
- The RAC Innovation for a Sustainable Future Award
Good luck to all entrants.
Youth Affairs Council of Western Australia
