Young people look to their peers for inspiration. In the important and often challenging years before adulthood, it’s vital young people can turn to their peers for support, encouragement and inspiration.
The Commissioner for Children and Young People Participate Award is open to young people aged 12 – 17 who show outstanding dedication to making a positive change in their community and demonstrate peer leadership through their chosen pursuit – be it in their school and education, through sports, student council, community involvement, their work, extracurricular activities or any other relevant pursuits.
Proudly supported by The Commissioner for Children and Young People
