The WA Youth Awards were established in 1999 to recognise young Western Australians aged 12 to 25 years for their achievements and contributions to the community. The Awards also reward outstanding youth groups and organisations that serve and support the state’s young people.

On behalf of the Youth Affairs Council of Western Australia, I am pleased to announce the 20th year of the WA Youth Awards 2018.

The WA Youth Awards which 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 Minister for Youth’s Most Outstanding Youth Worker Award
  • The Hope Community Services Positive Achievement Award
  • The Mission Australia Cultural Endeavours Award
  • The YMCA Organisational Achievement Award – Large
  • The Life Without Barriers Organisational Achievement Award – Small
  •  The ECU Community Leadership Award
  • The Commissioner for Children and Young People Participate Award
  • The RAC Innovation for a Sustainable Future Award
  • The Charmaine Dragun Memorial Award

Good luck to all entrants.
